ARP has provided products from their Britannia Cast Iron range for the refurbishment of St Michaels and All Angels Church, a Grade I listed building in the heart of Exeter. The church required a complete overhaul and replacement of the rainwater system to the north and south aisles, vestry and sacristy.
Williams & Burrows, their architect - Jonathan Rhind Architects and ARP collaborated to ensure that the correct product, the right quantities, and a high quality cast iron was all present in the rainwater system, and that it would be in keeping with the traditional style of the Grade I listed church.
The sizeable order included Britannia cast iron moulded ogee gutter and reBuctangular cast collared downpipes. These products were chosen for this project specifically as it is a high quality and conservation equivalent product ensuring that all heritage considerations were adhered to. The profiles and painted finish are in keeping with the traditional style of the building and Britannia Cast Iron is expected to last for at least 100 years, providing it is maintained and repainted regularly.
The Britannia Cast Iron range from ARP is the ideal choice for listed, conservation or heritage properties - made from traditional die casts, Britannia can be used to match or replace existing cast iron rainwater systems. Richard Burrows said “Our client, architect and ourselves were pleased with the products supplied and appreciated the endeavour of ARP to get things right. We will use ARP again and would happily recommend them”.
