Sceptical planners in East London had doubts about using lightweight steel roofing for the refurbishment of a social-housing project in London's Tower Hamlets - until they saw Tufftile. After seeing the products used successfully on another large housing project in Walthamstow, they were convinced. Tufftile roofing was specified by the architects for the flat- to-pitch conversion. There are six blocks of four-storey maisonettes in this phase (118 homes). On 4500m2 of roof, 7000 tiles were used. For more information: 01249 444 730.
