Eternit has been selected as an exclusive supplier for luxury property developer, Dorchester Living, as part of its impressive community based construction project, Heyford Park, located in the heart of Oxfordshire.

Dorchester Living is committed to creating a dedicated community for the residents of Heyford, with over 1,000 homes currently being constructed on the 1,200 acre site, with another 1,600 properties also confirmed to be built.

Dorchester Living has already invested in the surrounding community by building a nursery and a combined primary and secondary school with additional sports facilities. The new development will also provide employment opportunities and leisure facilities, including a restaurant, bowling alley and hotel opposite a new national convenience store.

Eternit Rivendale fibre cement slates has been specified on a number of the properties at Heyford Park as part of the exclusive contract. The durable and stylish slates provide the perfect material for the wide range of property styles located on the site, from arts and crafts inspired homes to large, three-storey town houses. Each plot throughout the development has its own dedicated style, boasting properties in a wide range of sizes, from first homes right through to impressive large-scale family houses.

Nathan Holcombe, Managing Surveyor at Dorchester Living said: “We specified Eternit Rivendale slates at Heyford Park as we wanted to create resilient properties that would stand the test of time. Choosing durable and hard-wearing building materials which don’t compromise on aesthetics, such as Eternit Rivendale slates, has been really important in helping us create an infrastructure for the community that we are confident will last.”

Nathan continued: “We are extremely pleased with the final look of the project as the slates complement the exterior aesthetic of each style of home. Heyford Park is a long term commitment for Dorchester Living and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Eternit as we build a thriving community for local residents.”

Available in striking Blue-Black and Cromleigh Graphite, Eternit Rivendale fibre cement slates feature a finely detailed surface and dressed edge, combining the benefit of modern technology with the look of natural slate. Ideal for use on projects where a traditional look is sought, Eternit Rivendale slates are perfect for homes where sustainability is key.
