Copper Roof add the finishing touch to Storey’s Way Student Accommodation

July 04 2019

Cambridge based roofing specialists T R Freeman has added the finishing touch to three striking student accommodation houses on Storey’s Way in Cambridge.

Appointed by lead contractor Barnes construction, T R Freeman has installed copper roofing, insulation and vapour seal to the three buildings which were designed by architects Cottrell and Vermeulen.

The new post-graduate accommodation houses, which were built for Churchill College, are located on a plot adjacent to existing accommodation buildings, and echo the arts and crafts feel of Storey’s Way.

The houses feature bespoke terracotta tiling and copper roofing, which not only provides a strong aesthetical appeal, it is also hardwearing, resistant to the elements and one of the most fire-proof materials available.

Featuring 30 en-suite student rooms and five studio flats, the buildings mean Churchill College is now able to offer housing for all its graduates on-site for at least two years.

Gary Webb, Director, T R Freeman said “These new student accommodation houses are really stunning and have great kerbside appeal. The copper roofing really adds to the overall impression, which perfectly fits in with the feel of the local area.” He continued “Copper was a great choice for these houses, given its overall durability and expected lifespan”
