Wienerberger products specified for award winning housing development

Wienerberger – the leading provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations – has provided bricks and roof tiles to an award winning housing development in Cambridge – Barratt Homes Eastern Counties’ Trumpington Meadows.

The design team behind the project specified Wienerberger’s Olde Ely Cream alongside the interlocking slate tile, BritLock and the new generation clay plain tile, 20/20 in Tuscan from Wienerberger’s roof brand – Sandtoft.

The combination of materials within the project has seen the development recognised as an NHBC Award Winner for two consecutive years, alongside receiving the NHBC Seal of Excellence in 2014.

Trumpington Meadows was also recognised as the London Evening Standard’s Best Large Development in 2014.

Ian Hamilton, Construction Director at Barratt Homes Eastern Counties, said:

We wanted to use a brick which would capture the superior feel of Trumpington Meadows, suitable for our executive town houses. The Wienerberger bricks at Trumpington Meadows form a key part of the look and style of the development thanks to their quality finish. We have been able to use a band of different coloured bricks to create a distinguished look for each property and the bricks have been laid in the Flemish bond style to give a coherent feel as you move through the development.

Keith Barker, Commercial Director at Wienerberger, said:

We are delighted to see Barratt Homes’ development receive so many accolades and think its use of our Olde Ely Cream, alongside the Sandtoft roof tiles, has been visionary. The development is still under construction and I look forward to hearing of more award successes as it nears completion.
