SWISH BUILDING PRODUCTS - Regional Developer Heads For Greener Pastures With Swish

Regional developer Cawrey Homes has specified Swish fascias, soffits and cladding in hazy grey for its new eco development, Fielding Meadow.

The Leicestershire-based house builder is now in the final stages of the 34 home development in Ratby.

Constructed to exacting standards, the two, three and four bedroom, homes have been designed to incorporate the latest energy saving technology to achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes level four rating.

Also including a focus on long-term maintenance savings, the properties feature low maintenance fascias and soffits from Swish Building Products and external cladding, used by Cawrey to house solar panels.

Dave Walgate, Buyer for Cawrey, said: “We wanted a development which delivered significant energy and lifetime savings at a sensible cost.

More broadly, the development features air source heat pumps, thermally efficient windows, insulated floors and ‘green’ sedum roofs.

“We put a lot of emphasis on the building envelope and energy efficiency for example, increasing cavity wall insulation from 75mm to 200mm but also looked at the long-term maintenance costs of the properties.

“Natural wood finishes clearly look good but at height need regular maintenance and that equates to higher costs. The Swish products in hazy grey delivered a strong aesthetic quality and critically required little to no future maintenance.”

Swish Building Products recently joined a handful of companies that have secured the responsible sourcing standard BES6001 delivering instant point gains to house builders under the Code for Sustainable Homes and Eco Homes.

In securing the standard across its PVC fascia, soffit, cladding and window board ranges Swish Building Products is able to offer developers maximum points under the Code (tier level 1), matching FSC timber specifications in Mat2 and Mat3.

Greg Wilde, Swish Building Products, said: “Roofline maintenance costs can be significant, in part because roofline products are in exposed locations and because maintaining or repairing them at height is more complicated and therefore more costly.

“PVC is low maintenance and as such, as long as they’re installed properly, once fitted roofline products require little to no maintenance.

“They’re also increasingly the sustainable option. Swish offers BES6001, across its roofline offer after its commitment to responsible sourcing of raw materials was recognised by the BRE. It gives developers those few extra points which can make all the difference in tipping the balance in favour of a higher code rating.”
