Posted on by in News

n1colorcoatCedar House in Somerset, the winner of Build It Awards ‘Best Eco Home’ 2014 used Tata Steel’s Colorcoat Urban as its roofing system

According to the design team, the cladding materials had to be chosen carefully to give Cedar House individuality and be sympathetic to the surroundings. On one side of the house there is an industrial building and on the other sides there are cider orchards.

Tata Steel’s Colorcoat Urban® roof system scored highly on all counts and the system helped the owners achieve their brief, providing a home requiring minimal maintenance and with low energy costs.

The Cedar House owners said: ‘It was thanks to a great team of suppliers that we were able to create a great home to be very proud of, and we were delighted to receive this prestigious award.”

Colorcoat Urban® is said satisfies the heart, mind and eye by providing a sustainable solution that is certified to look good and perform well for in excess of 40 years.

This innovative secret fix standing seam roof and wall cladding material delivers excellent aesthetics, performance and eco-credentials and is being increasingly specified on both new build residential and refurbishment projects.

The Colorcoat Urban® colour range has been inspired by architects specifically for the urban environment.
The natural colours blend with the urban landscape as well as making a bold statement for sustainable urban design in contemporary building.

The ability to achieve a stable colour ensures a consistent even tone, which is unachievable from most other roofing materials.
