Magazine B is a series of Grade II listed brick sheds in
Rochester, Kent. Its unusual name stems from the fact it was
originally used as a Victorian military installation – ‘magazines’
were buildings constructed to store gunpowder and
Long left derelict, the site was acquired to convert into a
series of offices – and Southern and County Roofing were
engaged to fit replacement slate roof.
Southern and County were tasked with finding a premium,
natural product with a long life span, and excellent
consistency in colour and texture.
SSQ’s Del Prado natural slate ticked all the boxes.
Its stunning aesthetics helped preserve the site’s historic
character – while its tried-and-tested strength and endurance
mean it will continue looking pristine and offering superb
performance for decades.
