Fast drying screed speeds up student accommodation refurbishment
Ronacrete screeding products were used in the refurbishment of student accommodation in Islington, North London. Contractors CCS Drywall Ltd installed nearly 1,000m2 of Ronacrete Ronafix Pre-packed Screed to the new 125 bed student accommodation. The refurbishment was commissioned by UNITE Group the UK’s largest manager of branded student accommodation. The scheme included 125 bedrooms, bike storage, common rooms and 1200sq.ft of commercial space.
“Our works were part of a refurbishment project to replace and repair existing screeds on a tight programme so that a wide range of floor finishes could be laid shortly afterwards. CCS chose to use Ronafix floor screeds to ensure that a quality hard wearing surface with rapid drying properties was achieved.”
CCS pumped the screed across the seven storey building using a Putzmeister M760DHB screed pump. Screed thicknesses ranged from 10-50mm across the site and were laid bonded with Ronacrete Standard Primer.
