From Car Park To Parkside With Marley Eternit Materials

Fibre cement Weatherboard from Marley Eternit was “fundamental” to the successful conversion of part of a former public car park into a private development of six detached houses.

The New England-style cladding panels were specified by Hellberg Harris Design who also selected the manufacturer’s Marquess slate-lookalike interlocking concrete tiles for the roofs of the houses at Parkside Close, Ladybridge Road, Purbrook, Hampshire.

Frequent specifiers of Marley Eternit roofing and cladding products over 40 years in practice, Hellberg Harris Design used the Weatherboard in straw and green colours over three storeys to add interest.

Built on a third of a hectare site by Nick Robinson Homes Ltd for developer Earlystage Ltd - a joint venture by the designers and contractor - the four-bedroomed houses with integral garages are constructed of a structural insulated panel system (SIPS) and clad entirely in Marley Eternit Weatherboard.

Hellberg Harris Design’s brief was to comply with PPG3 densities and produce a unique external design using contemporary construction and services systems including MVHR, and to provide light and airy generous internal family accommodation that made good use of clear roof space.

Building design consultant Simon Hellberg said: “The Marley Eternit weatherboarding met our requirements and was fundamental to the project. It doesn’t contribute to the overall effect, it creates it.”

Much attention was given to the detailed design and layout of the Weatherboard.

Simon added: “As white uPVC windows were used, we wished to create coloured surround contrast rather than the usual white trims. A matching colour to the cladding, but two shades darker, was chosen and painted as a matching width strip over the head of the openings to the reveal trims, and the cills were similarly painted.

“The Weatherboard was also set out vertically so that it integrates with the opening sizes and doesn’t finish up with lots of thin cut boards. The ground floor front roofing integrates with the first floor weatherboarding so that the lead flashing is all but invisible.”

He added: “Its success, in our opinion, is all in the detail and we are proud of what we have achieved.”

With its thin leading edge, smooth surface and slate grey colour, the Marquess interlocking slate convincingly recreates the appearance of natural slate and is the perfect solution where style and economy need equal emphasis.
