BBA Certified cement roof slates from Cembrit enhance a new housing development built in one of Coventry’s oldest streets
Far Gosford Street in Coventry now features a new gated community, comprising 30 three and four bedroom mews style houses. It is part of a wider multi million pound private and public sector regeneration project to develop this historic area
The history of Far Gosford Street in Coventry includes being the site of Henry IV’s banishment that lead to the Wars of the Roses in 1398 and more recently a target in the Blitz in 1940.
Harrabin Construction Limited worked with roofing specialist, Russell Roofing Ltd on the project. They specified Cembrit Jutland fibre cement slates for the high-quality smooth finish. Build time was saved because the 7,000 graphite slates were installed but did not need to be graded and sorted.
Frazer Simpson, Business Development Manager, Russell Roofing Limited explained that the pre-holed slates are extremely easy to handle and install. Jutland slates are an ideal solution for a fast-track construction environment.
Cembrit was recently presented with a renewed BBA (British Board of Agrément) certificate for its Jutland Slates by Claire Curtis-Thomas, CEO of the BBA at the RCI show 2016. This certification demonstrates that the slates can be specified with total confidence for efficient and long term use.
Cembrit A/A+- rated fibre cement slates can contribute to achieving an environmentally outstanding building.
The five variations (Jutland, Zeeland, Westerland, Moorland and Diamond) allow designers to achieve the highest ratings for roof specifications and are currently the only fibre cement slate certificated.
