A large urban redevelopment of 300 houses that had unusual house designs for the area and a range of different house types. The project is on its Fourth phase, and will operate a time frame of 6 years. It is the largest urban redevelopment in Ayrshire.


250,000 Slate Grey Grampian tiles were used along with Russell's RussFast Mono Ridge System. Russell Roof Tiles worked closely with the specifier, and were chosen due to the quality of the product. It helped the architect to see all the options that were needed on the specification.


The planners were very pleased with the final appearance of the roofs and a new phase has now been allocated following good performance on the previous phase.
