Our Cascade cast iron effect rainwater system was specified for this nine home development in Hampshire, providing the developer with a solution which offered the right balance between 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 was looking for a cost-effective rainwater solution which offered the aesthetics of cast iron, to conserve and enhance the character of the area, but with all the benefits of a plastic material.
To meet the requirements, Compton Homes specified the Cascade rainwater system comprising a high capacity Deepstyle 115mm gutter and the round 68mm downpipe. Lightweight and easy to install, Cascade ensured an architecturally sympathetic appearance was achieved in the shortest possible time and without the health and safety implications of handling and installing cast iron.
