Mercia Marina
Rivendale Fibre Cement Slate

Marley Eternit’s Rivendale fibre cement slates have been specified by architects Bi Design as a cost effective alternative to natural slate for the new Boardwalk development at the Mercia Marina regeneration project near Derby. The £1.7 million Boardwalk project features a promenade of six boutique retail outlets with offices above, all centred around a two storey bar and restaurant. Robert Neff, general manager and partner of Mercia Marina, explains: "The design was inspired by our waterside setting, so the two ends of the building mimic prows of a boat. We have added character to the centre building and roof line by creating a flying roof, which also minimises the impact of the height, as all the other buildings on site are two storeys."
