The Case Studies
Bristile roofing tops Display Home of the YearBack to all
A home featuring Bristile Roofing tiles took away ‘Display Home of the Year’ at the 2012 HIA Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.
The HIA Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in craftsmanship, construction, design and building technology. They also provide a golden opportunity to show off new trends and residential building products.
Display Home of the Year award winner ‘Phoenix’ was developed by Metricon, one of Australia’s largest and most respected residential builders. It’s a luxurious home with an open plan living design that sets a new benchmark for contemporary Australian homes. The intelligent floor plan is family-friendly, with five bedrooms and two bathrooms positioned around the living spaces, and is finished with the Bristile Roofing Classic range of concrete roof tiles – adding thermal performance to an impressive list of credentials.
The Awards are judged by highly experienced building experts, and acknowledge the talent of builders, designers, product manufacturers and building companies involved in creating quality houses, apartments, renovations and outdoor projects.
Rigorous attention to detail and meticulous standards of the home’s finish were complemented perfectly by the Bristile Roofing Classic range of concrete roof tiles.
Bristile tiles were selected not only for their great form and function, but also for the cost-saving and environmental benefits of high thermal mass, high solar reflectivity, low embodied energy helping to give the home a great energy efficiency rating.
Their natural durability not only supports the rating, but also means that the energy and raw materials used in their production are offset by the longevity of the roof, which in the case of concrete tiles can be more than 100 years.
Eastcoast General Manager, David Millington was pleased with the win, but is even prouder of the product’s long-term performance. “You just can’t underestimate the importance of a roof covering to the overall effect of a house. It’s something that has to be right from the very start, as our roof tiles are made to be on the building for its entire life.”
