Aggregate Industries’ Building Products division has supplied 2700m2 of roof tiling to a large-scale residential property in The Cotswolds.
With various buildings on site, the tiling was applied to the main house, multiple barns and a horse-stable block.
A completely bespoke product was created specifically for the project. It combinines the profile of the company’s existing Bradstone Cotswold tile range with the colour of its Bradstone Conservation tile.
Aggregate Industries was required to work alongside existing production lines, where the Cotswold-Conservation product.
Jeremy Lee, Building Products Sales Director for Aggregate Industries’ Building Products division said: “The nature of this project was completely unique, as was the client’s tiling preference. With a desire to create a striking contrast between the property’s walls and all of the roofing, a tailored solution was required which we had the flexibility and capability to provide.”
The company also provided more than 2000m2 of Masterlite Pro, and nearly 4300m2 of Masterdenz concrete blocks, including a large quantity of cut angled blocks for window and door reveals, driven by the nature of the building design.
The complete tiling and block product solution was supplied from Aggregate Industries’ large-scale manufacturing facility in nearby North End, Swindon. This meant a delivery schedule was crafted around the contractor’s timetable for the project.
Steve Hopkins, from Camden Property Developments, who was Project Manager, said: “Aggregate Industries’ ability to create a bespoke roofing product which met our needs, as well as supply such a large quantity of pre-cast concrete blocks, all from the same manufacturing facility, sealed the deal for us.”
In total, almost 900m2 of product was supplied through 77 deliveries during five months.
Aggregate Industries’ Cotswold roofing tiles are available in various sizes, to be laid to a traditional diminishing course. They are a highly acceptable reconstructed stone alternative to natural stone slates. They are supplied in a full, but rationalised range of diminishing lengths, and random widths, for an authentic appearance.
Masterlite Pro is a low-weight concrete building block designed for thermal efficiency and manual handling considerations, whilst Masterdenz is a high-strength, robust, load bearing concrete block. Both of these products can be used both in internal and external walls and are available in standard and paintgrade finishes for various applications and total flexibility.
