076 DECEMBER 2017 RCIMAG.COM RAINWATER SYSTEMS PROJECT FOCUS Quality, style and sustainability Ben Power, Guttercrest, said: “This was a unique project that we were delighted to be involved in. Every aspect of the building’s design and construction shows quality, style and sustainability and our coping and cill flashings have been integrated seamlessly into this. We thrive on technical designs like this one. From specification by the architect to working with installers, we provide a clear pathway from initial enquiry through the design process and ordering to bespoke manufacture and delivery direct to site.” Award winner Winner of the RIBA South Award 2017 and RIBA South Sustainability Award, the jury noted that the homeowners were commissioners of quality design. There was a clear rationale for the qualities the clients wanted to achieve, including making allowances for alterations in the future so they don’t have to move (Lifetime homes; space for lift and wide door openings). Aluminium rainwater goods are a popular choice for sustainable developments such as Incurvo, thanks to its abundancy in nature and being 100% recyclable. Guttercrest plays an important role in reducing the carbon footprint of building projects. With a life expectancy of over 60 years this greatly enhances the whole of life embodied energy figure relative to materials with a shorter lifespan. 90% of the aluminium used in manufacturing by Guttercrest comes from recycled sources. As well as coping and flashings, Guttercrest manufactures high quality aluminium guttering, downpipes, fascia, soffits and cappings from its Oswestry factories. A huge range of BS and RAL colours and finishes – such as stone effect – are available. Products are specified to suit all domestic, commercial and industrial development and are backed by a team of experts. Guttercrest’s experienced technical sales team is committed to providing architects, merchants, developers and installers with up-to-date advice relating to roof drainage flow calculations, BIM data and CAD drawings to aid design and construction. www.guttercrest.co.uk BUILDING PRODUCTS RAISING THE ROOFLINE A comprehensive range of cellular PVC fascia, rainwater and cladding products.
