The Challenge

To provide a robust and visually pleasing finished masonry product suitable for use within the grounds of a 5 Star Hotel.

The characteristics for the product must;

Be aesthetically pleasing

Be adaptable to the architects vision for terraces and canopies connecting the buildings

Suitable for both residential and communal units

Provide a product which performs in an A-rated build

The Solution

Roadstone provided 1,200m² of Forticrete Masonry (charcoal) for both Residential and Communal aspects of the development. The product was installed by a contractor in a random bond using a charcoal pigmented mortar supplied and mixed by the contractor.

A distinct benefit of Forticrete Masonry is that it was built by a standard block-layer, removing the need for a stone mason.

The Result

Installation of Roadstone’s Charcoal Forticrete Masonry resulted in a visually appealing product that fitted well within the existing aesthetics.


Ensure that accurate measurement of masonry required is carried out pre-build to ensure ease of delivery

To ensure consistency of mortar colour Roadstone Flomix Silo is recommended

It is always recommended to build a sample wall prior to build
