UILDING products manufacturer Technicrete has made a virtual clean-sweep of key exterior building components which are going into in the construction of the up-market Hillside Manor townhouse complex in Nelspruit.
Bricks, roof tiles, retaining walls and paving for the entrance roadway and parking areas concrete-based products, were supplied from Technicrete's factory in White River.
Construction at Hillside Manor in the up-market Steiltes area of Nelspruit started late in 2002. The sprawling complex of 28 separate residential blocks, each with four units, is due for completion by mid-2005.
The main entrance roadway has been elegantly surfaced with slate-coloured 60mm Double-Zig-Zag interlocking paving blocks for light and heavy traffic whilst the parking areas were paved with Bondbrick pavers of a similar colour. The roofs of the complex are tiled with slate coloured Double Roman roof tiles. Landscapers have employed the aesthetically pleasing Earthform retaining wall blocks to create attractive garden terraces and retaining walls. The Rustic-look Conroc rockface building bricks employed in the construction of the main buildings contrast dramatically with the painted concrete stock bricks.
"The overall effect is brilliant," said a spokesman for engineers and project managers Civicon. "In terms of quality, price, availability and aesthetic appeal, the Concor Technicrete products have performed very impressively."
