Iain Forrester, managing director of Morven Developments said: For our Bowmanston Steading development, we required a high quality roof tile that was sympathetic to the historic architectural design of each building.
I chose BritLock as I had seen it used on another development in Glasgow and was impressed by its authentic slate appearance. It has a thin leading edge and is fully interlocking making it quicker and easier to install than natural slate. Importantly, the tiles design and fact it is made using carbon neutral processes, have also ensured a very sustainable roofing solution.
Sandtofts sales and marketing director, Nick Oldridge commented: The BritLock is an ideal solution for developers looking for a very cost-effective, green roof slate. Its lightweight design makes it particularly effective for refurbishment projects and also results in energy savings during the transportation and installation of a roof.
Dating back to the mid-18th century, Bowmanston was the most outlying farm of the Culzean Estate. The buildings - which suffered considerably post the war have been sympathetically restored to their original appearance by recreating period details and using natural construction materials.
