Client: Howlett Leisure
Type of works: supply of Cupa 5 tiles.
Set within the beautiful rolling countryside of the Nene Valley lies Waters Edge; a prestigious development of high specification, luxury second homes. Cupa Natural Slate was specified for the roofing at Waters Edge, its characteristics meeting the exacting requirements of the designers.
Cupa Natural Slate provides an attractive, long-lasting facade that not only enhances the architecture at Waters Edge but is also sympathetic towards the tranquil beauty of the surrounding parkland.
Harris Slate provided Cupa 5 slate for the development. The firms Sales Manager, Kris Brentnall, commented: This is a prestigious waterside development using the highest quality materials. The roofs are enhanced by the high standard of Cupa slates which set off each property in the manner desired by the designer.
Waters Edge is a gated sanctuary situated near the village of Wansford and a short drive from Stamford. The properties each benefit from their own mooring and views across the River Nene. Quality and attention to detail are evident throughout the development, with Cupa Natural Slate further heightening the stylish, idyllic feel of Waters Edge.
Cupa 5 is a pale Grey slate with a riven surface and hand split into a thickness of 7 to 8mm. It is available in a variety of formats such as square, rectangular, rounded and rustic.
Roger Woodbridge from Howlett Leisure, who developed Waters Edge said: I specified Cupa slate because of the texture and colour. When the sun shines at certain angles it reflects the woodwork and lightens the edges of the fascia. The consistent quality of the slate is a bonus. I am very pleased with the service given by Cupa and would have no hesitation in using them on other projects.
Almost 20,000 Cupa 5 tiles were used throughout phase one of the Waters Edge project with a similar amount specified for the second phase.
