West Pennine Housing Association
turned to Redland to provide
the roofing solution for 43 new
terraced houses and bungalows
The scheme was designed by architects Denovo Design
to mirror existing houses in the area. While the roofs are
traditionally duo-pitched, sunpipes have been mounted
in a contemporary cowl to resemble the chimneystacks
of existing houses. These provide daylight to the
internal staircase and landing areas of the houses.
To match the traditional slate roofs of the neighbouring
homes, the architect sought a long-life flat concrete tile with
a thin leading edge. Redland was selected as the roofing
supplier for its great value Richmond 10 Slate in Slate Grey.
In addition, Redland’s Ambi-Dry Verge System provides
excellent resistance to wind uplift for the roof perimeter
and the Rapid Vented Ridge System neatly integrates high-
level ventilation via the ridge line into the roof void.
Public new build development:
43 new terraced houses
