Case Study - The Mount Retirement Village - Beauty on a Budget - Dreadnought Commercial Tiles

 

The Mount 1

Clay Roof Tiles

Dreadnought Commercial Tiles in various colours

Architect  - Urban Edge

Developer - Wilmott Dixon

 

 

 

 

   Background

The Mount 2This is a high quality residential carehome in Bishopstoke.  The architects had always felt that clay tiles would be the right roofing material to create a village feel, but tight budgets allowed only for concrete which did not fit with the 19th Century Mount and the beautiful surroundings of Bishopstoke Park. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mount 3Dreadnought Commercial tiles have not been graded as best quality for a variety of reasons.  Quality control at Dreadnought is rigorous and some tiles may be irregular in their shape or their colour, or contain small cracks above the water line.  These irregularities will not affect performance and the tiles come with a 30 year guarantee.

 

 

 

Solution

Dreadnought's Commercial tiles represent excellent value and  fit both the budget and the quality requirements for this project.  Each building at the Mount uses a different colour of Dreadnought commercial quality roof tiles to accentuate the village feel.  The use of clay tiles gives a high quality finish to this luxury retirement viallage and blends in well against the newly renovated and restored 19th Century Mount.
