The site off London Road in Peterborough is the country’s largest zero carbon housing development.

The quality of the 300-house build has netted a host of accolades for the developer and site manager, including winning the Best Low or Zero Carbon Initiative at the 2013 Housebuilder Awards.

Morris Homes chose Taylor Maxwell’s Stonepanel™ natural stone cladding to put the finishing touches to the 80 homes in the rural phase of the Vista development.

The choice turned out to be an inspired one, as site manager Gary Davies explained; "The fixing of the stone cladding worked out brilliantly and looks fantastic, the elevations make it look extra special. If you look at the houses, the stonework looks like it has been done by a stonemason even though it is effectively just jigsaw pieces of Stonepanel™: the bricklayers did a really good job of it."
