Sykes Specialist Contracting Ltd have recently supplied and installed the Wetherby Building Systems Epsitec System to a recent development of newly constructed town houses situated in the gardens of Axwell Hall, Gateshead.

This modern futuristic development involved innovative construction methods comprising of 100mm thick SIPS Panels and a lightweight roof covering incorporating the use of zinc standing seam roofing.

Wetherby Building Systems specification for the Epsitech System was incorporated into the design of the external envelope allowing the Architect to use an insulated render system giving the houses unparalleled levels of insulation surpassing that of current building regulations. The system also allowed the Architect to achieve the colour and texture for the finish of the walls by using Wetherby's silicone 1.5mm texture finish.

Sykes Specialist Contracting Ltd secured the tender to install the Wetherby Epsitech System, and cedar cladding. The contract was completed in May 2008.
