The old Dundrum Garda Station in Lower Kilmacud Road, Dundrum, received an internal and external sympathetic renovation by main contractor Ganson Builders Ltd.  Natural Hydraulic Lime 2 and Natural Hydraulic Lime 3.5 binders, available from SMET, were utilised in this specialised project.  Natural Hydraulic Lime binders are produced under an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 quality system to EN 459-1.  NHL binders are particularly suited for ecological new build, restoration and preservation works. The products’ special composition allow the mortar product to breathe and also permits constant hygrometric exchange between the substrate and the environment.  This historic building received an external re-pointing facelift with the internal walls replastered.

Smet Building Products Ltd have a complete range of SMET natural hydraulic lime products and are proud to be involved with sympathetic renovation works throughout the UK and Ireland.
