External Finishes

Versatility in design allows for a choice of finishes from a precast concrete envelope through to traditional or contemporary faced sandwich panels.

Over the years, Buchan have invested heavily in the research and development of external finishes. As a result, we now have experience of supplying a variety of different types of finishes to numerous projects nationwide.

Below are some examples of the finishes available.

Available finishes include:


Acid etched

Cast in brick

Cast in stone

Coloured concrete

Exposed aggregate

Formliner imprint


Polished concrete

Rib and wave

Rough cast and texture

Sand blasted

Terracotta tiles

Wood effect
Incorporating the external finish within the panels removes potential delays to the external envelope due to inclement weather and also negates the need for external scaffolding removing the health and safety issues and costs associated with temporary works. The contract duration can be reduced as the structure can be made water-tight quickly allowing the internal works to progress sooner than with more traditional methods of construction.   As panels are manufactured in a factory controlled environment the external finishes are high quality and snag free with minimal waste. Panels are manufactured on a bespoke basis and with our wide range of finishes we are confident that we can provide a structure where the façades blend in sympathetically with the surrounding buildings.
