Cast iron style rainwater system used for conservation area development

Brett Martin’s Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater System has been specified for a new nine home development in Hampshire, providing the developer a solution which balanced aesthetics, long term performance and cost-effectiveness.

Located within the village of Bentley conservation area, the Crocks Farm Development features the partial rebuild and conversion of a 900m2 period Oast House into three new four bedroom properties, a pair of new ‘barn style’ properties, a single detached four bedroom home and a terrace of three two bedroom cottages. For this part new build, part refurbishment, the developer Compton Homes sought a rainwater solution which offered the aesthetics of cast iron, to conserve and enhance the character of the area, but with the benefits of a plastic material.

To meet the requirements, Compton Homes specified a Brett Martin Cascade Rainwater System comprising a high capacity 115mm Deepstyle Gutter and 68mm Round Downpipes.

Commenting on his choice of materials, Jeremy Hatch, Director at Compton Homes said: “Cascade looks like cast iron but isn’t cast iron. It looks very good indeed and offered us the detailing and finish we were looking for, striking the right balance between the new build and refurbished elements of the project.”

The Cascade 115mm Deepstyle Gutter System is suited to both refurbished period and new build properties with larger roof areas, combining old style detailing or a sympathetic touch with high levels of roof drainage.
