Award-winning London property developer Joseph Homes has launched a collection of stylish and vibrant apartments in the South West of London in Balham known as The Tramyard.

Located on a former tram depot site in the centre of a buzzing and hip Balham, tipped as the city’s next Notting Hill, the development consists of 70 stylish one, two- and three-bedroom apartments and duplexes.

Gypcraft was appointed to install SPSenvirowall’s new and innovative Cavity System 1 with a Mystique Yellow SpeedySlip to deliver a vibrant façade to the building utilising approximately 300m2 of the A2 rated flexible brick slips and 200mm mineral wool insulation.

The Tramyard is the first building to use SPSenvirowall’s Cavity System 1 - the next generation of external wall insulation systems designed to create a void between cladding and sheathed framed structures. The system consists of EuroClass A1 components which are mechanically fixed back to the inner sheathing board to create the designed cavity width with either the insulation board fitted directly to the A1 fillets.

The Cavity (CS) System is an excellent innovation. It provides a cost effective, simple and quick system to install, with the additional benefit of a drained cavity, as demanded by the leading warranty providers and insurers. It is fully tested and accredited with KIWA BDA agreement certification EuroClass fire A rated classification with an extensive range of render and brick finishes.

The brick finish utilised on The Tramshed is a Mystique Yellow SpeedySlip - lightweight flexible brick slips ideally suited for high-rise applications. It is extremely durable with no maintenance cost and once fitted appears identical to real bricks. The flexible brick slip provides the traditional appearance of a brick finish but with the technology of a lightweight brick slip.

As a result, Balham has acquired an incredible new building with a façade that adds to the vibrancy of the location. New homeowners can enjoy a thriving urban setting with access to wellness studios, coffee shops and restaurants.
