Natural aesthetic for eco-supermarket from Aggregate

  • 8 May 2018

Aggregate Industries’ Building Products team has supplied 1,200 square metres of its Bradstone Crofters roofing tile to the eco-friendly Midcounties Co-operative supermarket in Gloucestershire.

The store has renewable energy sources which help power the store, including discreet solar panels on the roof to provide energy.

The project’s contractor, Attleys Roofing, called on Aggregate to offer a cost-effective roofing tile, which had visually appeal, and would suit the other materials being used.

Aggregate Industries’ roof tiles are moulded from hand-dressed natural stone slates through a specifically developed technique which reproduces the fine detail of the originals on the textured face.

The Crofters roofing consists of main slates, under ridge and eave slates with matching accessories including ridge, hip and ventilation units for the complete roofing solution.

The authentic colours of the Weathered Buff shade met all aesthetic requirements, providing a striking and impactful solid colour, creating an impressive contrast effect with the building’s lighter walling.

Tina Attley, Company Secretary at Attleys Roofing, talked about how Aggregate successfully met the specific brief of supplying the roofing solution to add visual appeal at a reasonable cost.

“The Crofters slate lent itself extremely well to the project, as the dark look of the slate allows the building to stand out with a striking finish, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the store,” she said.

“Plus, the roof slate fits in well with the surrounding area, as many other properties feature the stone look.”

Jeremy Lee, Sales Director for Aggregate Industries said the Cotswold location of the new store meant it was vital to achieve an authentic visual to coincide with the surrounding landscape.

“With natural stone tending to deteriorate with weathering, Crofter’s stone-effect tile provided the ideal solution, offering a cost-effective and long-lasting performance combined with an attractive aesthetic,” he said.
