Anglia Lime Company visit
AC Architects recently attended an open morning at the Anglia Lime Company in Sudbury, Suffolk.

This CPD event furthered the team’s knowledge of working with and specifying lime. The morning started with discussions comparing the traditional and contemporary materials and the team received guidance on specifying mortars and renders including maintenance requirements appropriate to the work we undertake. A short presentation outlining the lime cycle was followed by having a go at pargeting; applying detailed ornamentation to freshly plastered surfaces. East Anglia is the traditional home of pargeting so the Suffolk location was very appropriate.

A few of us were even able to try our hand at plastering using techniques of both hand float and spray machine- some with more success than others!


The Team!
