Russell Roof Tiles specified for affordable housing project

Lovell Partnerships recently specified Russell Roof Tiles (RRT) for an affordable housing project in one of Scotland’s most affluent areas.

The local people of Callander, (near Stirling in Central Scotland) are finding it harder to live in the town due to the skyrocketing house prices.  In the last 10 years prices have increased by 15%.  The development of Claish Farm headed by Rural Stirling Housing Association and Lovell, has delivered 50 new affordable houses.

The new development at Claish Farm contains a mixture of bungalows and two, three and four bedroomed houses, of which all have Polden tiles from Russell Roof Tile’s Natural Range to ensure they are blended seamlessly with surrounding homes.

Alan Young, regional sales director at Russell Roof Tiles said: “We’re delighted to have supported Lovell and pleased to have been able to provide a consistent, reliable product for this development.”

Russell Roof Tiles also worked with Lovell on a MOD project back in 2021 to deliver 917 homes for the Ministry of Defence on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire as part of the £250m development programme.

Lovell regional managing director, Kevin McColgan, added: “We were delighted to have chosen to use Russell Roof Tiles on our Claish Farm development near Stirling.  The quality of their product added significantly to the impact of the overall build.  As a result, the Claish Farm development has been an exemplar for other local authorities and housing associations, who have visited to see the fantastic work that has been done.  We look forward to using Russell Roof Tiles again in the future.”
