Project Completed: Hilsea Bus Depot, Hilsea

This project was the start of a transformation to regenerate the former Hilsea Bus Depot in to  a highly sustainable, much needed, affordable housing. Valcan Ltd were pleased to be appointed to supply their recyclable Vitrabond to be part of the Art Deco appearance of this high quality building whilst ensuring the environmental impact was kept to a minimum.

Using Vitrabond VB9902 White and two Special RAL colours; RAL 9010 and RAL 7035, Hilsea Bus Depot was transformed in to a modern and colourful residential facility.
