The Hampton in London is a high end private home property development project which required 1000sq feet of slate (20,000 slates).
A technical issue from the off was that Antler Homes, the main contractor, had no experience of using slate before. They chose SIGA to consult and advise them of the best slate that suited their requirements. They required the slate to be the flattest possible workable slate – this was because it had to be cut to accommodate a Hexagonal Turret Roof design.
After having reviewed the slate design, Antler Homes were happy to continue, and used SIGA 39 slates due to its adaptability and the authentic roofscape it created.
