    Adam Ernst from City to Coast used Pro Plaster for his Park-House Residences project. The multi-storey luxury residential complex was architecturally designed, featuring spacious and elegant interiors and immaculate finishes that complemented the inner-city’s surrounds.


    The top-floor penthouses boasted eight-metre-high ceilings with many large windows, creating ample open space and light. This meant every detail had to be seamless, every design element perfect with not a mark or bump visible.


    Adam chose Pro Plaster for the job, opting for several compounds for the high-level finishes, including a Pro Plaster Taping Compound, Pro Base 40 and all topped with 4T All Purpose.


    “I chose Pro Plaster as they have good, reliable products,” Adam said. “When it comes to luxury developments like this, you need something that is precise and consistent and that’s something we know Pro Plaster provides.” 


    After using Pro Plaster for the penthouse apartment ceilings, the finishes were flawless and perfectly complemented the sleek design. 


    Adam has used Pro Plaster for multiple other developments over the years.  


    “Every product used does exactly what they’re supposed to do. I need to know the materials going onto every part of that job are going to stand up,” he said. 


    City to Coast has been using Pro Plaster for more than 20 years and hasn’t looked back, also citing the great working relationship they have as a big deciding factor for jobs.
