CUPA PIZARRAS: CUPACLAD® Project Now Acts as a Key Showcase in East Anglia

  • 28 Feb 2024

CUPA PIZARRAS has installed a range of CUPACLAD® rainscreen cladding on the Cambridge Country Club building, in Cambridgeshire. Not only did this meet the requirements the club had to maintain its attractive façade, but it was also a chance to create a stunning showcase, allowing architects based in East Anglia the chance to see a range of CUPACLAD® designs.

Situated in the countryside location of Bourn, Cambridge, the Cambridge Country Club boasts an extensive 18-hole private golf course, luxury spa and function space. Recently the club needed to replace a stretch of timber cladding that was no longer looking its best with a more durable cladding solution that would maintain its finish.

CUPA PIZARRAS’ CUPACLAD® rainscreen cladding was suggested by the site’s contractor Roof Brothers. As such, the installation on the country club’s building not only provides an eye-catching feature wall as part of its overall façade but it also provides an ideal East Anglia location to see the standard CUPACLAD® designs in a stunning environment.

CUPACLAD® is a ventilated natural slate rainscreen cladding system suitable for use on both contemporary newbuilds and traditional renovations. BBA certified, the solution has an incredibly low level of water absorption and is very resistant to high winds, impacts and fire, as it is classified A1 non-combustible. It is also easy to install, maintenance free and will retain its colour and sheen throughout its 100-year lifespan.


The CUPACLAD® 101 system – showcased at the country club – utilises invisible fixings, to ensure that the slate is the main design feature. Easily installed using stainless steel nails, the 101 range includes 101 LOGIC, which reflects the traditional overlapping roof slate arrangement, 101 RANDOM that combines different sizes of slate to generate a creative and dynamic composition, and 101 PARALLEL, which can be used to create a homogeneous finish through its use of aligned joints. A system with visible fixings – CUPACLAD® 201 – is also available.

Victor Wakefield, Company Director at Roof Brothers, comments: “We would definitely recommend the use of CUPACLAD® to clients looking for a straightforward but highly effective cladding system. The installation is easy and in terms of design, I believe the 101 RANDOM is the most effective and eye-catching.”

Trevor Mansfield, local Technical Sales Manager at CUPA PIZARRAS, adds: “This is a brilliant collaboration that now allows architects in this part of the UK to see CUPACLAD® in all its splendour and in a truly beautiful location.”


Architects can arrange to view the installation by getting in touch with their local area sales manager. CUPA PIZARRAS will also be hosting a CPD at the Cambridge Country Club on 26 March 2024. To register your interest click here.
