JB Shingles help school extension blend in

Marley Eternit’s JB Western Red Cedar Shingles have been specified to clad a new extension constructed to enlarge Flitch Green Academy in Essex. The extension has added three additional classrooms and support spaces at the primary school as it accommodates a significant increase in pupil numbers on site.

A key requirement for the design and specification process was to ensure the new building would blend in seamlessly with the existing school structure. The specification of the Red Cedar Shingles as the roofing solution meant the colour selected would be sympathetic to the current shingle use on site as well as the surrounding buildings, while also providing a clean, refreshing and modern finish.

Alex Larn, Commercial Director for main contractor, Beardwell, said:"On completion, the shingles provide an aesthetically pleasing finish that works very well with the existing buildings and within the overall location. Construction was straightforward and the product is easy to work with. We expect the materials to offer great performance characteristics in the years ahead and they have been an ideal solution for Flitch Green Academy as the school welcomes increasing numbers of children.”
