We believe in our promise, Roofs for Living, because we aim to offer more than simply the means of covering a roof. Quality products and services made to give shelter, provide comfort, express style and create value. This is what our customers can expect from us. Some of these stories are detailed in this brochure. They give the best idea as to how, at MONIER, we like to do business and how we look forward to building a future in roofing which will provide sustainable solutions. This is our commitment to our customers and to the ever-changing world in which we live.

Copper Lake Villas, St. Petersburg, Russia

looking good
Across the world, MONIER manufactures hundreds of different styles of tile in a broad range of colours and surfaces, together with a variety of high performing roofing components. This means that whatever the design of the project, the vision of the architect and the roofer or the dream of the home-owner, there is always a MONIER roof perfect for the job. A roof system which makes your home, work-place or community centre look its best and ready for life.

Braas Turmalin tiles provide a touch of home and Swedish style.

SWEDISH CO M M U N IT Y CE N T RE FRANKFURT / M A IN , G E RM A N Y
When the Swedish community living in Frankfurt had the chance to build their own church and community centre, they wanted to create a building which would remind them of home. The roofs, typical of the Dalarna region in Sweden, have a steep pitch to prevent the build up of snowfall in the winter. This reduces the risk of the roofs collapsing under the extra weight. Braas Turmalin tiles, manufactured by MONIER in Germany, were chosen. They worked well with the steep pitch of the roof and their matt grey colour created a look which was both elegant and restrained. Also, the tiles had a perfect fit for the architectural requirements and the batten spacing planned. The finished clear and flat look was both striking and reminiscent of the roofs back home in Sweden. It had transported a bit of tradition and national pride to Frankfurt. The project was awarded a prize in the company’s 2007 Gut Bedacht architecture competition.

In a woodland setting, MONIER roofing products harmonise a project of real distinction and beauty.

COPPER LAKE V ILLAS S T. P E TE RS B URG , RUSSIA
For this project, the houses were built in Finnish style using calibrated wood to sit most comfortably within the woodland setting. The choice of roof tiles was important both for the look and for the safety advantages that they would bring to the houses: weighing down on the wooden walls and preventing the build up of static electricity and risk of fire. MONIER roofing materials had a perfect fit for the complex roof structure of the 45 houses and at the same time, fulfilled ecological requirements being set by the developers for the entire building project.

PU DU U LU PARK K UA LA LU M PU R, M A LAYS IA
Pudu Ulu Park is the only family park in the heart of bustling Kuala Lumpur providing facilities for recreation and relaxation. The buildings within the newly created community gardens needed to reflect the overall landscaping vision of the park: to provide a space which would make greatest use of natural elements and provide a seamless transition from hard to soft landscaping elements.

MONIER’s natural colour palette blends in with the overall look and feel of a community park.

The MONIER Biber round tiles, in natural colour finish, had the softness of shape and tone which was perfect for the job. They were fondly named the ‘fish scale’ tile by the local designer. Their curves reflected the flow of the paths around the park and the muted tones delivered the essential sense of balance and serenity. The result is a place where the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. MONIER is delighted to play its part in offering a much needed haven from the stress of everyday life in a fast moving capital city.

MAJESTIC MANSION B E IJ IN G , CH IN A
With Qinghua and Beijing Universities nearby, the Xishan mountains to the north west and the Summer Palace of the Qing dynasty to the east, this exclusive project in China called for a majestic and special design. Traditional building methods in China would not have been able to deliver the quality finish that was required. The mortar fixings would not have matched the roof tiles, nor protected the building from the rain.

A change in installation sees MONIER providing a better looking and more protected roofing system. MONIER encouraged the developers to break with tradition.
Their deep grey Chappre flat tile, combined and colourblended with a special fixing system, delivered a great looking roof and upgraded its water-proofing capability. The finished development sits proudly alongside its grand and esteemed neighbours.

B B C H E AD Q UARTERS LO NDON, UK
The building of the new BBC offices in London’s White City was a highly prestigious project. Its size and technical specification made it a very demanding brief. The chimney system needed to cater for heating, hot water, stand-by generators and CHP applications. It was an enormous construction. Moreover, the last thing the BBC wanted was for a collection of different styled chimneys spoiling the look of their sleek new flagship HQ. The Schiedel ICS5000 Generator System was up to the challenge. It was the only chimney system with the functionality to efficiently service all the application needs. By wrapping the four similar styled chimneys within a single steel casing, the appearance of the building was enhanced.

A chimney system proving that big can be beautiful.

in touch with the environment
At MONIER we believe that our roofs play an important part within the landscape. They need to reflect and be compatible with their surroundings in colour, shape and functionality. We need also to do our part to help protect our environment. MONIER’s product development programmes are constantly evolving energy efficient, sustainable products and systems which deliver against the ever evolving eco-agenda.

MONIER roofing system provides all year-round protection in the toughest weather conditions.

YE LLOWS TO NE CLUB LODG E RO C KY MOUNTAIN, USA
When faced with extreme weather conditions, the choice of roof is a key decision. In the harsh climate of the Rocky Mountains, there are months of intense summer sun, to heavy snow. The design of the Yellowstone Club’s Warren Miller Lodge called for a tile and dynamic roofing system which could cope with all of this and look good in an area of mountainous beauty. MONIERLIFETILE’s Madera tile rose to the challenge capturing the textures and tones of natural cedar and delivering protection against the threat of forest fires. The tiles were installed as a cold roof system which allows for a constant flow of cold air under the tiles. This has the essential dual benefit of providing enhanced performance in the winter months and reduced heat loss through the summer.

Working successfully as part of a team, MONIER’s environmental credentials make history.

LO ND ON TRANSPORT MUSEU M COVE NT GAR DEN, UK
In the heart of historic London stands the London Transport Museum, a fine example of magnificent Victorian architecture. When its roof was in need of an overhaul, the office of the Mayor of London and the London Climate Change Agency’s tough environmental targets had to be met. These were in addition to ensuring that the roof would be in keeping with and visually enrich an area popular with visiting tourists and residents. A one thousand panel solar roof of MONIER UK, was installed by a specialist contractor which met the requirement to provide a weather proof and energy efficient roofing system. This generates thousands of kilowatt hour of electricity over its lifetime as well as cutting down on many hundreds of tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide emissions. It is the first time such technology has been applied to a Grade II listed building. The London Transport Museum is both protecting and making history.

Providing modern day living behind a façade of tradition and historic style.

L I S T E D M U LT I FA M I LY H O U S E H AM B U RG , G E RM A N Y
The twenty three residential buildings had been in constant use since 1899 with no upgrade or update. They no longer met modern day living standards. Their upgrade needed to happen whilst retaining the historic Grunderzeit façade of the existing building. The tenants were involved in the discussions at every step of the way. The modernisation programme included the development of 234 living units arranged in courtyards behind the façade. The most up-to-date energy saving features were installed including windows, heating systems, wall and roof insulation. The customers have chosen Braas Harzer Pfanne tiles in classical red colour to harmonise well with the natural brick, punctuated by the stylish white architectural elements. Their softly undulating profile brought depth and texture to the large and steep roof surface. The tiles delivered a strength and robustness which was part of the demanding brief, as well as a guaranteed ability to withstand the extreme weather conditions. The buildings now offer their tenants the double benefit of living in an historic place of beauty and interest, combined with modern day standards of comfort.

B OATH OUSE PROJECT HUA H I N, THAILAND
In the Phetchaburi Province in Thailand stands a development designed by leading designer M.L. Tridhosyuth Devakul, the honorary chairman of Boathouse Hua Hin Co., Ltd. Here the style was very much about elegance and enchantment with each of the villas boasting a look and feel which was both contemporary and dramatic. The brief was to find both roofing materials which would deliver against these aesthetic demands and with outstanding quality, to prevent leakage and deliver a cool and comfortable living atmosphere to the residents. Ceris Biber tiles in natural red colour in combination with dry tech underlays and a specific foil were chosen for the project. They combined a uniquely modern Thai style look and feel with unrivalled durability. Their colour matched the vision of the designer and their proven ability to keep the buildings dry and cool was a further factor in their selection. They covered the 7,700 square metres of roofing with total style and protection. The result is a development which stands head and shoulders above others of its kind in the region.

Meeting the demands of contemporary architects for style and substance.

S HANGRI LA HYD ERABAD, INDIA
The project was a highly prestigious one: a gated community of thirty luxury villas. It was the first time that the client and MONIER had worked together and the first time too that concrete tiles together with a selection of roofing components had been used on a development of this kind in India. The three month delivery deadline added to the pressure. MONIER worked closely with the client and invited them to visit the factory to see the tiles in production and to understand MONIER’s strict quality control measures. The Elabana antique grey roof tiles were delivered on time and to exacting quality and colour fastness standards.

NE P TUN H OTEL L E BA, POLAND
The traditional Hotel Neptun stands on the edge of the Baltic sea, at Leba, one of the most popular holiday resorts in Poland. Here the natural beauty of the seascape is dominant and the hotel has to withstand the scrutiny of the most discerning visitor and the salty sea mist, wind and rain. The brief demanded a roof which could equally measure up to the human and environmental challenges. Being such an historic building, the former castle also required a tile which had a traditional look in keeping with its majesty and splendour. Braas Taunus tiles together with a gutter system were selected for the project. They boasted a smart, clean look and had the highest performance standards protecting the roof, and the hotel from the extremes of sea salt and sunshine. A perfect place to go on holiday.

MONIER in Denmark was chosen for the job after successfully completing two pilot projects which proved their expertise and attention to every detail.

PE TRO PO LIS RIO DE J AN E IRO, B RA Z IL
An ambitious new build residential project in Rio demanded a tile which could answer the demands placed on it by a very challenging design and dynamic roof structure. The total roof area was formed of six octagonal modules which meant that poorly laid tiles would not guarantee the necessary durability for a project of this premium nature. Tegula Red Tradition tiles were chosen for the project. They not only delivered the traditional look which was so important but also had the supporting roofing components and laying prowess to guarantee the essential levels of durability, precision and insulation. The finished project is a modern day residential development which is at the forefront of comfort, practicality and style.

MONIER combines a traditional look with modern standards for durability and precision.
