Family-run property developers, BBA Developments, create distinctive and individual homes combining sympathetic restoration with contemporary architecture, design, and technologies. They have earned a reputation as skilled and discerning craftsmen and aim to build homes that they can be proud of and that people are excited to live in.
Their most ambitious project to date commenced when they received planning permission to “convert” a traditional barn. Believed to have been built in the 1800s, the site is in the attractive village of Meldreth, ten miles South West of Cambridge. The development was designed and constructed around the original elm-framed structure and blends old and new materials to achieve an imaginative and seamless interaction between the historical and modern aspects.
Crowning the entire site, the clay tile roof serves to connect the various materials with each other whilst forming an attractive focal point from surrounding locations. The handmade Ashbury Multi tiles were specified from Lifetiles’ collection and supplied to the site by Ridgeons’ Royston facility.

“The Ashbury Multi tiles chosen from Lifestiles extensive range serve to both retain the historical vernacular appearance of the roof and thereby satisfy the planners’ rigorous standards. Moreover, the owners will also benefit from the 30-year guarantee underpinned by the Lucideon-tested quality of the materials and craftsmanship used throughout their production process.”
Adam Green, BAA Development Director
Ben concludes: “Not only is this combination of stylishness, craftsmanship and enduring value entirely aligned with our development standards and our buyers’ aspirations, but the customer service provided by the combination of Ridgeons Royston and Lifetiles helped to ensure that this project came in on time and on budget.”
