PIGMENTO Green zinc roof for Lake District activity centre

A standing seam VMZINC PLUS structural, non-ventilated roof system in PIGMENTO® Green has been used on the £2.9m accommodation building at Tower Wood Outdoor Education Centre. Situated on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere, the building is stepped over several levels and was subject to strict planning requirements. The subtle shade of green blends perfectly with the rural environment and will retain its appearance through natural patination. Work was undertaken by specialist contractor Longworth Building Services of Haydock, one of the first partners to commit to the VMZINC@WORK initiative which enables a 30-year product warranty to be provided. The project has been shortlisted for the 2015 Civic Building Awards
