Aggregate Industries has supplied a plethora of its range for an exclusive residential development in Charlbury, Oxfordshire, with walling, roofing and flooring products all used.
The ten luxurious five-bedroom Cotswold houses, built by developer H Willis Ltd, features a stunning exterior courtesy of Bradstone Rough Dressed walling in ‘Southwold’, whilst the roofing sees Bradstone ‘Cotswold’ tiles used, a perfect mimic of the indigenous Cotswold slate.
These reconstructed stone roof tiles are a viable alternative to natural stone slates.
Structural products from Aggregate also featured in the development; concrete blocks starred in the external wall construction, whilst flooring on ground and first floor levels saw the bespoke Beam and Block flooring system used, from Aggregate-division Charcon Construction Solutions, providing off-site manufactured pre-cast concrete products.
Made up of pre-stressed concrete beams, this is a practical option for creating hard wearing floors, with thermal insulation values also met when combined with appropriate finishes, as well as being naturally fire resistant.
Jeremy Lee, Sales Director for Aggregate Industries’ Building Products division, said this project showcased the company’s capabilities expertly, with concrete blocks, walling, flooring and roofing all supplied.
“With many of our products manufactured in our large-scale facility in Ashton Keynes, Swindon, we were able to flexibly accommodate the delivery schedule, causing minimal disruption to local residents,” he said.
“We’ve worked with H Willis Ltd for a number of years due to the fact our products provide an authentic, aesthetic appearance that complements the indigenous Cotswold natural area.”
Henry Willis, Managing Director at H. Willis Ltd, praised Aggregate, with the appearance of the roughly-dressed quarried stone for the walling coupling ‘perfectly’ with the ‘Cotswold’ roofing tiles, ensuring a beautiful finish which enhanced the overall development.
