Shopwyke Lakes, Chichester

Challenge:
Provide a cost-effective tile with aesthetics that match the local area
Solution
Bute
Location
Chichester, West Sussex
Developer
Taylor Wimpey

Background

Russell Roof Tiles supplied Taylor Wimpey with 180,000 Bute tiles, a thinner leading edge tile, in Burnt Orange for its Shopwykes Lakes development in Chichester

Solution

Bute – the tile offers the strong and long-lasting benefits of concrete even in severe weather conditions but is also able to replicate the look of other local materials, especially in the South of the UK. The Bute is a thin leading edge flat interlocking tile which when laid gives the appearance of a small format tile or traditional plain tile, with the commercial benefit of a larger format tile.
