Building materials manufacturer Aggregate Industries has successfully supplied walling, roofing, and flooring products to an exclusive new residential development in Charlbury, Oxfordshire. The ten luxurious five-bedroom houses at Ditchley Gate have been built by developer H Willis Ltd. The scheme is located in a thriving small Cotswold town in the Evenlode Valley. Each property has been individually designed to meet a high specification, with homes offering unique views onto the glorious Oxfordshire countryside. As Aggregate Industries manufac- tures a wide range of building products with a high aesthetic design, its products are ideal for residential developments in the picturesque Cotswold. The expert team supplied Bradstone Rough Dressed walling in ‘Southwold’ for the exterior walls. The unique walling is reminiscent of roughly-dressed quarried stone and, on this development, a unique design feature included the use of small jumper blocks as a corner detailing. For the roofing, Bradstone ‘Cotswold’ tiles were specified, as they resemble indigenous Cotswold slate. The reconstructed stone roof tiles provided a viable alternative to natural stone slates, and were laid to a traditional diminishing course for an authentic visual.
