Based in Devon – with over 50 years experience, it was chosen as the contractor for the refurbishment of St Michael’s and All Angels Church, a Grade I listed building in the heart of Exeter. The church required a complete overhaul and replacement of the rainwater system to the north and south aisles, vestry and sacristy. Williams & Burrows, Jonathan Rhind Architects and ARP collaborated to ensure that the correct product, the right quantities, and high-quality cast iron was all present in the rainwater system, and that it would be in keeping with the traditional style of the Grade I listed church. Prior to the order being placed, ARP provided a pre-painted sample of the cast iron so that both Williams & Burrows and Jonathan Rhind Architects could inspect and approve the quality. Once approved, the order for cast iron guttering and downpipes was placed and ARP responded with a speedy delivery date. All products and accessories were painted semi-gloss black in ARP’s in-house wet paint line and then suitably packed and despatched to site for installation. The sizeable order included Britannia cast iron moulded ogee gutter and rectangular cast collared downpipes. These products were chosen for this project specifically as it is a high quality and conservation equivalent product ensuring that all heritage considerations were adhered to. The profiles and painted finish are in keeping with the traditional style of the building and Britannia Cast Iron is expected to last for at least 100 years, providing it is maintained and repainted regularly. The Britannia Cast Iron range from ARP is said to be the ideal choice for listed, conservation or heritage properties. Made from traditional die casts, Britannia can reportedly be used to match or replace existing cast iron rainwater systems. The Britannia range of gutters, downpipes and hoppers are available either primed or painted to eight standard colours. The advantage of having your order pre-painted, means there is much less time spent on site, and once installed it is protected from the elements. As a standard service ARP provides a touch up paint to finish the job. Richard Burrows said: “Our client, architect and ourselves were pleased with the products supplied and appreciated the endeavour of ARP to get things right. We will use ARP again and would happily recommend them”. ARP says it prides itself in offering a quality solution for all roofline and rainwater challenges and will work to fulfil your requirements. www.arp-ltd.com A heavenly restoration of a Grade I listed church Britannia Rectangular Downpipes at St Michael’s and All Angels Church Glazed Clay Roof Tiles to match existing or in ANY COLOUR of your choice We offer "Sterreberg", "Courtrai", "Pottleberg", Double & Single Roman profiles, in glazed and unglazed finishes Tiles shown are not to scale Smithbrook Building Products Ltd PO Box 2133, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 9BD Tel: 01273 573811 Fax: 01273 689021 Email: info@smithbrookproducts.com www.smithbrookproducts.com One machine for three welding applications - for seams close to the edge, around parapets and �������������������������������� Compact - easy to navigate �������������������������������������������� High performance - a more reliable and faster weld process Low maintenance - easy to service and fewer spare parts The First Choice In Welding Single Ply SWISS QUALITY Distributed in the UK by Welwyn Tool Group Contact us today Telephone Email Website 0800 856 0057 info@welwyntoolgroup.com www.welwyntoolgroup.com
