Visitors to the Alice Holt Forest Centre in Farnham will be able to enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee and sit down in their newly opened Café area.

HA & DB Kitchin called upon the expertise of Bracknell Roofing to install the cedar shingle roofing to the building.

Cedar shingles were the perfect topping for the build as they blend beautifully into the forest surroundings. In line with manufacturing specification each shingle was nailed twice into place and Bracknell worked with other trades as rooflights were installed ensuring that the aesthetic of the completed build complemented the stunning surroundings.

As cedar shingles are a natural product, over time they will change colour from the current brown into a beautiful silvery grey.

The Bracknell team really enjoyed working with the material in a change from the normal roof coverings and demonstrated our flexibility and experience on all types of build.

The finished building is a compliment to the Forest park site.
