Mapei’s products were specified to help represent the epitome of sophisticated city living, with a distinctly British feel in an apartment redevelopment. Mapei products were distributed by Boyden Tiles, Croydon with the project being led by WB Simpsons.
67 Tufton Street is tucked away, down an elegant street in one of London’s most prestigious quarters. The 22,000 sq. foot building, previously used for office space, has been converted into a residential building. The stylish development compromises of 19 spacious, luxurious apartments and 3 duplex penthouses just a stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament. Keraquick and Latex Plus were used on approx. 340m2 of flooring to lay the Domus porcelain 600 x 600 tiles in all the main and ensuite bathrooms plus all of the balconies within the apartment block. Keraquick, which carries an EC1 rating, was specified with Latex Plus for their high performance, fast setting attributes and enhanced adhesion, allowing the porcelain tiles to be laid quickly.
800m2 of wall tiling were fixed using Mapei’s Ultralite S2 – a high performance, lightweight cementitious adhesive with very low emissions of volatile organic compounds. The adhesive, specifically developed for large size tiles to be laid on large surfaces without back buttering, was used to bond Domus Tiles 3m x 1m ‘Kerlite Slim’ porcelain tiles to the walls of the apartments luxury bathrooms and ensuites.
Mapei’s Topcem, from the Fast Track Ready range, was specified as a screed for an area of 120m2 onto external balconies. The quick setting screed allowed the installation of Domus Tiles 200 x 800mm ‘Wood Sense’ porcelain tiles just 24 hours after application.
