Construction starts on 25 new affordable homes in Lanner

Site_Signage.jpgWork to build 25 new affordable homes for Coastline Housing has started on site this week at the Tresavean Estate in Lanner. The project had originally been scheduled to start in the autumn of 2011 however was subject to a judicial review.
The go ahead was given in late February following a favourable outcome for Coastline in the judicial review. The new homes will be built to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and will be available for affordable rent and shared ownership early in 2014.

Mini Stonewold on the dark side

Redland is introducing a new, darker grey colour to its popular Mini Stonewold product range.

The existing Slate Grey colour presents a pleasing mid-grey finish that comes from the through coloured construction of the product. However, in order to provide a solution for customers looking for a darker grey Redland is introducing Mini Stonewold in the new Charcoal Grey colour.

The dark grey colour is achieved through the application of a dark grey coating over the the top surface and edges of the slate grey tile body to give a satisfying rich hue.

Mini Stonewold is one of our most flexible and economical concrete slate products, featuring interlocking edges for simple construction. Mini Stonewold is a flat concrete slate that can be laid at pitches as low as 17.5o in both new build or re-roofing projects.

The new Mini Stonewold Charcoal Grey is offered with a matching Half Slate Pair together with an 8.8k ThruVent, complementary Universal Angle fittings for ridges and hips as well as a RedLine Vent Tile. All the dimensions, pitch parameters and headlaps are the same as existing Mini Stonewold colours.
