Located on one of Battersea’s most sought-after residential streets, Bolingbroke Terrace is a collection of nine striking contemporary houses recently constructed, specifying aluminium rainwater goods from Shropshire firm Guttercrest.

With prices starting from £1.8 million, the homes include features such as polished limestone flooring, marble bathroom suites and media rooms. Built by developer Coronado, for whom sustainability is key, each home embraces the advantages of modern, low carbon footprint living.

Externally, eco-friendliness is blended with architectural sophistication and attention to detail. Rainwater hoppers and 75mm downpipe in RAL 7016 (anthracite grey) from Guttercrest are a striking modern contrast to the beige brickwork.

Aluminium rainwater goods are a popular choice for sustainable developments such as Bolingbroke Terrace, thanks to its abundancy in nature and being 100% recyclable. Guttercrest play an important role in reducing the carbon footprint of building projects. With a life expectancy of over 60 years this greatly enhances the whole of life embodied energy figure relative to materials with a shorter life span. 90% of the aluminium used in manufacturing by Guttercrest comes from recycled sources.

Guttercrest rainwater goods are available to order directly from the firm or through most good builders’ merchants.
