Rainscreen design with Birkdale slate
Marley Eternit’s Birkdale fibre cement slate has been specified on a new and prestigious police training centre project in Birmingham. It was chosen as the perfect answer to fulfil part of a complex and challenging rainscreen design. The architect wanted to utilise traditional roofing materials such as a roof slate within an unusual contemporary design and Birkdale’s performance, design flexibility and colour match has helped deliver a stunning overall roofing vision.
The new single story training centre, which will be used by the West Midlands police force, was designed by architect Rob Martin from Nicol Thomas in Birmingham. It consists of a fully grassed roof with Birkdale slates used as a form of a raked rainscreen cladding to elevate the building, seeking in the architect’s eyes to provide a ‘scaled’ protective skin created by a distinctive ‘basket weave’ design.
Rob Martin explains some of the background: “I was interested in the response of applying a traditional material with a contemporary solution. The scale of the Birkdale slate was deemed appropriate for the single storey nature and overall size of the building, and supported the concept of the building being wrapped in a ‘protective’ skin. The slates dressed edge further reinforced the concept giving the skin a heavier feel as opposed to the clinical lighter feel a square edge would give.”
Rob continues: “The fact that the building sits in a green field site meant that the choice of materials was critical in enabling the scheme to appropriately respond to its context. We had to find a solution which would also respond to the surrounding urban environment and would naturally ‘bed’ into the landscape. The familiarity of the traditional slate look of the tile helps the building settle well into its surrounding urban environment whilst the green tile and the use of the zoomorphic basket weave creates a softer ‘naturalistic’ feel which we felt lent itself to the grassy site in which it lays. The naturalisation of the building is completed with the introduction of the grass roof which due to its sunken position can be visible from the nearby roadside.”
Rob concludes: “I had come across the basket weave effect previously and wanted to see if we could replicate it at the new training centre. After speaking with Marley Eternit to source the right colour fibre cement slate, we were happy to discover that the Birkdale could be satisfactorily specified from a technical standpoint with the distinctive and unusual use we wanted. So a combination of Birkdale’s colour, edge finish, and modular scale size and design flexibility supported our design vision to use a traditional material in a contemporary and unusual manner.”
The success of the project also depended greatly upon top quality craftsmanship from the roofing contractor, as Rob testifies: “The skill and quality finish delivered by Dent and Partners the roofing company is exemplary. The work, for example, on the mitred corners is immaculate and the overall roofing design has been realised thanks to such quality tradesmanship.”
The Birkdale fibre cement slate boasts a finely detailed surface, semi-matt finish with dressed edges to reproduce the attractive appearance of natural slate. It is light weight, has real strength and consistent performance characteristics, as well as being easy and quicker to install than natural slate products. A total of 4,000 Green Birkdale fibre cement slates were used on this project.
Steve Harris for Marley Eternit says: “When the architects approached us with their queries around product suitability and technical questions to achieve the desired and unusual look, we were happy to assist this project to fruition. Our technical services support ensured that the correct roofing product solution was identified so that the architect’s vision could be satisfied. The completed roofing design clearly works well in its setting, ideally suiting both the overall building concept and the surrounding area.”
UK manufactured fibre cement slate is a sustainable alternative to natural slate. Only an estimated 10% of all mined natural slate ends up being utilised in a usable product with the remainder discarded, and the total amount of natural slate waste in the UK is now estimated at some 500 million tonnes to date.
All Marley Eternit fibre cement slates are manufactured in the UK and achieve an A or A+ rating when used in the BRE ‘Green Guide to Specification’.
New retirement home gets sophisticated finish
When Sunrise Senior Living was looking to develop a prestigious new care home in the north west of England, it found its roofing needs satisfied through the specification of Marley Eternit’s Hawkins clay plain tiles. They provide both the distinguished look to deliver the architectural vision as well as proven performance that will last for many years.
Located in the leafy village of Hale Barns on the outskirts of Altrincham in Cheshire, the new development offers residential care facilities for up to 60 people and features modern amenities including a bar, garden and internet access.
Over 100,000 Hawkins clay plain tiles have been used on the project, to cover a roof area of 1,700 square metres. Selected in colour, Dark Heather, the tiles provided the care home with the elegant, yet modern look that the developer was hoping to achieve, as Mark Threlfall of Allied Roofing explains:
“When the project developer approached me to discuss roof coverings for the retirement home, they were looking for a tile which would reflect Sunrise Senior Living’s vision of a distinguished building made from high quality materials. After exploring various options, we decided that Marley Eternit’s Hawkins clay plain tiles met these two objectives perfectly, and offered the best solution for the job”.
One of Marley Eternit’s longest manufactured roof products, the Hawkins Clay Plain tile boasts over 150 years of heritage and development which has lead to its acclaimed position in the market today. Through the use of modern firing techniques, the product is offered in four distinctive colours – Staffordshire Mixture, Dark Heather, Blue Smooth and Staffordshire Blue. Additionally, the product is available with a complementary range of fittings and accessories allowing roofing contractors and architects to achieve both a sophisticated and distinctive looking finish.
In addition to the aesthetic appeal of the tile, Sunrise Senior Living’s management team was keen to only use materials on the project which offered both high quality and proven long-term performance characteristics.
Mark Threlfall concludes:
“Marley Eternit is known for manufacturing high quality roof products so we are confident that the Hawkins Clay Plain tile is both hard wearing and will stand the test of time. The completed roof looks great and I am delighted with the role that Marley Eternit played in the project.
The Sunrise Senior Living development in Hale Barns is just one of several projects where the company have selected Marley Eternit’s roofing products on the roof of the building.
