Redland has supplied its Cambrian Slate to roof a stunning new 15-sided wildlife visitor centre, near Colchester, Essex. Cambrian Slates were particularly appropriate for the new
Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre, which is operated by Essex Wildlife Trust and owned by Essex & Suffolk Water, as they can be positioned at pitches as low as 15°, as required for this roof.
Project Architect Andrew Yeats said "This was a particularly hard project as the building is round with vertical walls and the roof comes to a point like a tee pee. The Cambrian tiles were design compatible and of a very high quality. They’re also reconstituted slate which looks extremely good whilst being cost effective."
The new visitor centre which overlooks the reservoir is twice the size of the old one and includes a large viewing area, shop and education and meeting rooms.
