The company is a market leading supplier of ready mixed concrete, mortar, plaster and screed, as well as the unique Ultraflo® and Exposa® products and the recent projects set a positive scene that Belfast’s changing landscape is defined by streetscapes that are dedicated to education and world-class facilities for our students.
The recent completion of Elms BT1 at College Avenue, a 740-bedroom student accommodation complex, embodies a city investing in its people and looking towards the future.
The McAleer & Rushe development occupies a prime site in the heart of Belfast city centre where the scheme has replaced the old Met College. RTU supplied all the concrete used in the construction process as well as the impactful coloured building mortar that helps deliver such a striking aesthetic to one of the city’s newest buildings. Every aspect of the project reflects RTU’s commitment to providing the highest-quality products and excellent customer service, as well as the company’s continuous innovation of materials that positively impact both the physical construction and the architectural design.
RTU’s Managing Director, David McIlroy, explains, “As a trusted supplier, we ensure to deliver on all aspects of the service cycle, from inception to completion. As an innovative organisation, we are continuously developing our product range to exceed the demands of a forward-thinking industry and a growing sector.”
The expertise of RTU is reflected throughout an impressive portfolio of clients and projects including the new Titanic Walkway, Ulster University, Portstewart Promenade and the Botanic Gardens. The value proposition of the core range is complemented by the signature Ultraflo® and Exposa® products delivering a whole new level of performance, finish and visual appeal across the self-build, residential and commercial markets.
Ultraflo® is Ireland’s only ready mixed hemihydrate liquid floor screed with unique properties that make it an ideal solution for all domestic and commercial projects. It offers improved energy efficiency and lower runnings costs with underfloor heating, and being a hemihydrate screed means it requires no buffing/grinding to the floor surface. Ultraflo® is produced in RTU’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities (accredited to ISO 9001), and with a ten-year proven track record, it ensures a perfect screed every time.
Exposa® is a beautiful decorative concrete, which is the first choice for any hard landscaping project and the ultimate alternative to traditional paving, asphalt, tarmac and loose gravel. Exposa® is highly durable, low maintenance, practical, safe and flexible, with a slip-resistant finish that makes it the ideal choice for residential driveways, patios and footpaths as well as commercial applications in large pedestrianised zones. What makes Exposa® stand out from the crowd is the variety of colours on offer that allows designers and architects to be as bold or subtle in their design work.
