To recreate traditional appeal in a new build project situated in the Derbyshire town of Bakewell, in the Peak District National Park, Roe Developments chose the Cascade cast iron effect rainwater system.
Roe Developments required approval from the local planning authority and Conservation Officer for the Peak National Park before the Cast Iron Style range could be specified for the site. Consideration of the age, style and characteristics of the surrounding buildings in Bakewell was a major factor in the choice of any new materials used. It was also chosen for its ease of installation since it is much lighter than traditional cast iron and was much safer to work with, especially for the contractors working at height.
For Roe Developments, aesthetics were particularly relevant considering the style of many of the buildings in the local Bakewell area - the Cascade Roundstyle gutter system was used with the 68mm round downpipes to provide the authentic detailing required and allowing Roe Developments to blend neatly with the surrounding architecture.
