Context

Gorsgoch village near Lampeter in the county of Ceredigion, Wales is developing quickly due to increased planning applications and housing developments.

After being closed for a number of years, the village hall – which provides the community with a meeting place - required a refurbishment. In particular, the narrow asbestos cement corrugated sheet needed to be replaced with a durable and attractive roof.

Products supplied

Natural grey coated B5 corrugated sheets were selected for this project and have provided a great finish that blends in well with the countryside setting. The contractor installed a Plain Wing Angle Ridge to provide sufficient ventilation. The rust and rot-free B5 corrugated sheet is available in 14 different lengths ranging from 4'-10'6" which makes the sheets approximately 40% wider than traditional 3" profile. This allows for much better coverage per sheet and B5 also offers superior water shedding capacity due to the profile of its corrugations.

Outcome

The durable and low maintenance credentials of Cembrit’s B5 corrugated sheet made it ideal for use on this project,” comments Huw Davies from Pensaer HD Architect. “Cembrit’s robust onsite service options and the technical support representatives were of great use on this project. The team were extremely helpful, assisting me with all of my enquiries. This has helped to make the project a success.”
