Founded more than 25 years ago, Rockcote has created a coloured render revolution – with products that combine the beauty and style of traditional architectural finishes with the modern performance qualities of the contemporary world.
Rockcote came to Brolton for help: needing a new manufacturing facility capable of producing absolutely consistent quality products, at a volume of around 40,000 tonnes per year. In line with its commitment to sustainable manufacturing, the facility also needed manufacturing to incorporate radical waste reduction and manufacturing efficiency.
With few benchmarks to guide us, Brolton Group invested a significant amount of time in examining every aspect of the facility and its production processes, to create a low environmental footprint solution.
Brolton’s design centred on a gravity feed system that reduces the plant’s energy requirements. It also incorporated a 2 metre sand pit, through which water is filtered before being re-used. As a result, the facility is water-independent and imposes little waste burden on the environment. The overall outcome is one of Australia’s first successful examples of a sustainable manufacturing facility.
