PHPD discovers how an aluminium rainwater system was used to help create new homes in a contemporary village development in Humberston.
A new scheme by Cyden Homes, Par 3 in Humberston is a contemporary village development within a protected and managed environment. The housebuilder engaged national award-winning architect Jonathan Hendry Associates to bring to fruition its latest concept.
Among the fairways of the former Humberston Golf Course, the designed residences were constructed by Cyden Homes to take maximum advantage of the natural environment.
With the different styles and finishes to the houses, reflecting the surrounding natural environment, it was important that the chosen rainwater system emulated the buildings’ exteriors.
“In respect of the guttering and down pipes, the architect had specified milled finish aluminium rainwater goods to go with the contemporary external design. Our fitter, John Gothorpe had dealt with Yeoman Rainguard previously and recommended we got in contact,” explained Peter Bond, Sales & Marketing Director for Cyden Homes.
Yeoman Rainguard’s SL Aluminium products were decided upon in a milled finish to complement the building materials used for the development.
SL Aluminium half round 125 by 75mm gutters along with 75mm diameter down pipes were installed on the residences, with Plain Cast Aluminium Hoppers added to some garages and out buildings.
Aluminium rainwater systems offer aesthetic advantages and are also easy and quick to fit, saving onsite installation times when fitting to multiple units.
A durable product, Rainguard SL Aluminium rainwater systems offer a long and maintenance-free lifecycle. Add the fact that it is a 100% recyclable material, and it becomes an ecologically sound choice as well.
“The style of finish on Yeoman Rainguard SL gutters and downpipes has been well received by the customers as it is a ‘noticeable’ addition, helping to affirm the uniqueness of the development,” concluded Mr Bond.
