Hendon Waterside is a flagship Barratt London residential regeneration scheme in North London. The project itself is creating 2,000 new homes set in 170 hectares of beautiful grounds and gardens, which will provide residents with lakeside living within 30 minutes of Central London. The standout building on the site is the Vista building, rising some 26 storeys, with views across the Welsh Harp reservoir and the city beyond…
Shaun Henley, Managing Director of Henley Stone, the installer on the project advised ‘Many of the buildings have Portland wet-cast stonework balconies and banding at floor levels around their perimeter. As stonework installers, we were pleased that Vobster Stone (part of the Taylor Maxwell Group) was selected as the stonework manufacturer by both Barratt London and the architect Allies and Morrison.
"Having worked with Vobster for many years now, we knew we would be installing what we consider to be the very best wet-cast material available on the market. This proved to be the case yet again, as our masons would frequently praise the accuracy and quality of the Vobster product."
Shaun continued "There were some very complex design issues which Vobster resolved with Barrett London in good time for us to install the stonework without interruption or delay. Their wet-cast material was the perfect choice for this application and was very simple to work with. It provides a fantastic finish and contrasts extremely well with the adjacent bricks, metalwork and glass."
"Due to significant design restraints, we needed the supplier to be able to manufacture the material to very tight tolerance levels, and to be able to keep up with the high pressure demands of supplying to such an important flagship project. We are looking forward to working with them again on the next project and will continue to recommend them for projects to clients and Architects without
Their wet-cast material was the perfect choice for West Hendon and was very simple to work with.”
