Stamco Providing Materials For Grand Designs House

Stamco have supplied building materials for a four bedroom house that will be featured in the Channel 4 Grand Designs TV programme scheduled for this October.


The house is a fascinating architectural project and replaces a derelict workshop on a prominent brownfield site in the South Downs National Park on the banks of the River Ouse on the outskirts of Lewes. The owner is an advocate of good architecture and although the design emulates the industrial heritage the house will have a
modern feel with natural finishes. The architect is Sandy Rendel who specializes in bespoke, one off properties. Local handmade bricks were used and the walls and roof are clad in a continuous skin of CorTen metal which self weathers to a striking ochre colour, echoing the soft red clay brickwork and tiles, reflecting the past heritage of the site. The building will have views across the river and behind the chalk face of Cliffe Hill provides an imposing backdrop. A simple selection of materials emphasis the building’s form and reflects the quality of the site and its surroundings. Stamco have supplied all the timber that was required throughout the building together with all the concrete requirements and other building materials.

The building contractor, Peter Carter from Myriad Construcion commented: “We chose Stamco for this prestigious project because their staff have a good depthof knowledge, are flexible and being independent Stamco can offer a wide range of products from different brands. They always go to great lengths to supply want we want rather than just offering what they have. We have built a close relationship and it’s obvious that they appreciate our business. Having Inspired Home Interiors as part of the Stamco group means that we can send our clients to the showrooms to select their kitchen and bathroom together with matching tiles”. It goes without saying that Stamco Building Products is proud to be chosen to provide many of the materials needed to make this home one of the most prestigious projects in the South East important enough to be featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.
