Marley Alutec’s high-quality aluminium roofline systems recently provided the ideal low maintenance solution for a unique Norfolk property designed with sustainability in mind.
Milestone Farm in Wymondham, Norfolk was the conception of owner David Ford who wanted to create an attractive, high quality and energy-efficient home. Designed to his specification, it utilised the latest in modern building techniques and materials.
The property was constructed to Passive House principles to reduce its carbon footprint. This is one of the reasons Marley Alutec’s aluminium rainwater systems were selected as aluminium is infinitely recyclable without losing its quality - and as such is one of the most environmentally-friendly building materials available.
The 6 bedroom property was longevity and minimising maintenance requirements. The marine-grade aluminium used by Marley Alutec is highly corrosion-resistant, requiring little to no regular maintenance throughout its expected 50-year lifespan, aside from periodic aesthetic cleaning.
Jason Littleboy, Area Sales Manager at Marley Alutec provided technical support to David and the team from Gill Building, the contractor on the project. The Evolve Box gutter and Flush-fit 72x72mm downpipe in RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey was chosen to suit the overall aesthetic of the property and meet the rainwater capacity requirements.
Alutec’s technical team also provided further support by designing and manufacturing bespoke 5 degree angled outlets to compensate for an unusual roofline design detail and ensure the flush-fit square downpipes would be installed correctly.
Alutec’s Evoke fascia and soffit systems were also installed on the property. Unlike sheet aluminium, the aluminium composite Evoke can be installed without the use of specialist tools.
Marley Alutec is committed to designing the most sustainable, durable and high-performance guttering, rainwater drainage and eaves systems available.
Not only are its products manufactured from sustainable and durable marine-grade aluminium, but it has also worked towards the ISO 14001 certification, which recognises environmental management across its manufacturing and operational processes, including the attainment of zero landfill waste.
