Challenge

Barratt Homes selected Heathland tiles from Redland for The Limes development in West Sussex to meet the aesthetic requirements stipulated by the planning authorities. Mid Sussex District Council was keen for the development to blend sympathetically with the surrounding architectural style of the area which has traditionally used hand-made clay tile.

Solution

For this project Barratt put forward the Heathland concrete tiles from Redland, specified in Autumn, Ember and Manor House Mix colours. The Heathland range of Plain Tiles is designed to be a cost effective alternative that is indistinguishable from handmade clay tiles with a range of colours that mimic the traditional artisan product they emulate.

Result

Redland is the only company to offer a handcrafted appearance plain tile in concrete, proving particularly popular with developers in the South East region of Kent. The Contract Manager from Beacon Roofing has used the Heathland range on a number of projects: “the roof looks great; it’s a really good mix of colours. The Manor House Mix is a particularly popular colour.
