A tale of two parks

A tale of two parks


Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey selected Redland’s Fenland Pantile roof tiles for two large scale housing projects in Norfolk to help ensure the developments blend in with the local vernacular.

Both Beaufort and Middleton Park provide the idyllic location to anyone looking for a slower pace of life, with quaint markets, golden beaches and sweeping woodland in the surrounding areas, Taylor Wimpey has created two stunning hideaways for a growing family.

Andrew Rodzian, Project Manager for Taylor Wimpey, said: “We have a long standing relationship with Redland and they are one of our preferred roof tile suppliers. We chose the Fenland Pantile because it most closely matches the roofs in the surrounding areas and feel it is important to maintain the architectural identity of small towns like the ones where Beaufort Park and Middleton Park are situated.

Redland developed the Fenland Pantile for the purpose of catering to the South East and East Anglican markets that favour a particular aesthetic when it comes to roofs. The classic single pantile shape provides a modern interlocking concrete format that guarantees robust, weathertight performance in all conditions.

Avonside Roofing Ltd T/As Essex Roofing have carried out the roofing works to both of these developments, Branch Manager Gary Drage commented: “These projects have been reasonably straight forward  and we are quickly working our way through the units. We have used Redland tiles on numerous projects in the past and have found them to be reliable and consistent with our customers being happy with the results.
