Vive la difference - Corbans Estate residential buildings

Corbans Estate residential building development20 new homeowners will soon be moving in to enjoy Stages 1 and 2 of the Corbans Estate residential building development in Mt Lebanon Drive in Henderson, Auckland, with another 63 due to follow on their heels when all work is complete.

The first of the new home exteriors is comprised of a maxim panel wall system with a Rockcote EPS 40 insulated wall cladding system supplied and installed on battens finished with a Rockcote 'Traditionale' sponge texture to complement the style and design direction of the development.

The versatile Rockcote EPS 40 system combines the appearance of traditional plasterwork with a reinforced, weather-protected base and minimal maintenance requirements. The substrate make-up incorporates expanded polystyrene to provide an effective thermal barrier against heat transfer. Its cellular composition gives the system immunity against deterioration over time and a high strength-to-weight ratio. Applied by licensed applicators to ensure professional service and correct installation, the Rockcote plaster finish comes complete with a 15 year performance warranty and five year workmanship guarantee.

The exterior premium Rockcote finish is complemented in the interior with Resene finishes tinted to Ecru White (light muddy neutral) from the Resene Karen Walker colour collection.

The style of each stage of unit development will be varied to avoid the uniformity often associated with developments of this size. This recognition of the importance of individuality enables the development to appeal to a broader base of homebuyers keen to reflect their personal style in their abode.
