Invicta Developments Creates A First Class Finish With Forticrete

Luxury East Midlands housebuilder, Invicta Developments, has partnered with leading manufacturer, Forticrete, as part of the construction of its latest portfolio of exclusive properties in Grantham, Lincolnshire. 

Nestled in the rural countryside, the new Brownacres gated development will consist of nine spacious four and five bedroom homes, each featuring the latest technologies, beautiful architecture and expansive landscaped gardens.

Over 135m2 of Forticrete’s high quality Shearstone Walling Stone will be installed across each property in conjunction with complementary building materials, including brick, render and large panels of glazing.

Specified in a rustic Cotswold Village finish, the walling stone will add a unique touch to each properties’ exterior, whilst simultaneously creating a cohesive visual appeal across the entire development that reflects the rustic appeal of Grantham.

David Goodridge, Managing Director of Invicta Developments, said: “For over 25 years, we have been committed to creating homes of quality and distinction. To achieve this, it’s crucial that we ensure every aspect of our properties is completed to the highest level and will continue to look and perform at this superior standard for years to come. 

“As soon as we saw Forticrete’s reconstituted walling stone, we knew it met these requirements and would enable us to perfectly reflect the local vernacular, without having to compromise on longevity or visual appeal. We have been so impressed by Forticrete’s offering, we are now looking to specify the range for two future developments.”

Constructed of carefully selected blends of locally sourced natural aggregates and pigments, which are expertly combined with sand, cement and stones, Forticrete’s reconstituted walling stone authentically reflects the texture and visual appearance of natural stone, whilst providing future homeowners with a robust and durable exterior that requires minimal ongoing maintenance.

Chris Piper, Sales Director for Housing Developers at Ibstock PLC, said: “Invicta Developments sets the standard for luxury families homes, where every single aspect has been designed to deliver first class aesthetics and performance. 

“Our Shearstone Walling Stone was the ideal choice for this development, as it provides David and his team with the ability to successfully recreate the visual appearance of natural walling stone with confidence. We look forward to working closely with Invicta Developments over the coming months as the construction of the site progresses.”
