The ‘new for 2012’ two-storey Treehouses at the Centre Parcs Holiday Villages have been fitted with Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix mortarless GRP Valley Troughs, meaning that Hambleside’s roofing products have yet again been specified for another project of a top quality brand.
Other prestigious buildings with Hambleside products installed are the McLaren F1 headquarters, the British Museum, London Zoo’s Gorilla Kingdom, Durlston Castle at a World Heritage Site, and Marks and Spencer’s largest distribution centre.
Roofed using cedar wood shingles, not a common choice of roof covering in the UK, the Treehouses at Sherwood Forest and Longleat Forest are designed for families or friends who want the ‘ultimate’ Centre Parcs experience with views of the forest. The luxury features include a games den and infrared physiotherm room.
Blue Lines Roofing Ltd with 25 years of specialist project experience chose Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix mortarless GRP Valley Troughs in conjunction with Centre Parcs technical services because they complemented the Treehouses’ design and décor perfectly. John Boucher, managing director at Blue Lines, said: “We have been using Hambleside Danelaw’s products for 25 years. With their GRP valley troughs, you are getting good quality at a reasonable price.”
