McCarthy & Stone (Developments) Limited

We are currently constructing an apartment block in the heart of Chelmsford for McCarthy & Stone which consists of 55 apartments.


The interesting element to this build is the use of a relatively new blockwork system called Porotherm supplied by E.H. Smith.  We approached the new system with an open mind and the benefits soon became apparent, the blocks are high in strength, extremely lightweight, with a simple mortar system all contributing the streamlining of the blocklaying methodology.
