A superior finish

April 2018 saw the completion of six apartment blocks in Gibraltar with Andura’s Pro-Flex high performance coating. Built in the mid 1980s, the Watergardens, Gibraltar is a complex of six luxury apartment blocks up to 12 floors high comprising some 300 apartments. Situated beside the Ocean Village Marina and beneath the Rock of Gibraltar, the apartments have panoramic views to both Spain and Morocco.

When the apartments came up for external redecoration, having been painted some ten years previously, specialist contractors Noneedtopaint Ltd, were commissioned by facilities management company BFA Management for the refinishing of the glass reinforced concrete constructed buildings. As approved applicators of Andura Coatings, Noneedtopaint Ltd specified Andura’s latest Pro- Flex technology which is not only water and dirt resistant but also has elastomeric properties giving excellent resistance to any subsequent cracks in the substrate.

The 12,000 square metres of external wall area of the six apartment blocks all received a classic primer and then finished with the Andura Pro-Flex specialist coating. Some 3000 litres of both primer and Pro-Flex was used on the project. So, confident are they in the finish and the work, that both the contractor and Andura provided a partner guarantee of 15 years, covering both work and materials.
