Located within the Cheshire countryside, Broadoaks is a new, two-storey contemporary building. Designed with a holistic approach by N C Architecture, the property incorporated solar panels and a ground source heat pump to improve its energy efficiency.
A sustainable guttering system was also required. As such, contractor RHB Construction specified Marley Alutec for the aluminium eaves systems. All Marley Alutec products are manufactured from the infinitely recyclable marine-grade aluminium. The company is committed to designing the most sustainable, durable and high-performance guttering, rainwater drainage and eaves systems and this includes the use of an architectural grade polyester powder coating (PPC) to ensure an attractive, durable finish.
Andy Heath, Director at RHB Construction commented: “From the onset Marley Alutec took a hands-on approach, discussing options and providing a solution, which was fit for purpose and could be installed with minimal fuss.”
Specifically, Marley Alutec’s Evoke fascia type A was used on the sloping eaves of the property and type B on the bargeboards. Bespoke box end corners were designed to ensure the transition from eaves to bargeboard was unobtrusive yet easy to install. Aluminium Evolve Ogee gutter system and Flushfit downpipes were also chosen to offer a sleek and unobtrusive solution to complement the build’s contemporary aesthetic, all in RAL7016 anthracite grey colour.
When installed easily and cost effectively, aluminium eaves systems are a viable option for architects who are looking for durability, sustainability and a design edge that can distinguish them from the competition.
