The blueboard surface is supposed to have a special affinity for lime plaster, but I've never used it. As such, I'd expect it to be a rather good backing material for a ceramic tile installation.

Knowing generally how the skimcoat veneer plaster is done, if it's at all common in your area I wouldn't expect it to cost a lot more than finished drywall, 'specially if you were to want a level 5 drywall finish. But in my area it's not at all common and I'd expect to have a good bit of trouble finding someone to do it.

In Bwaston it might be a more common and popular finish and there may be lots of contractors who could provide that service. Possibly the same guys finishing drywall. All you can do is ask your prospective GCs if they have someone who can do the walls the way you want.

My opinion; worth price charged.
