Introduction:

This 16-sided home is heavily influenced by traditional Celtic crannogs and sits on the bank of Loch Lundie, combining traditional style with modern construction methods. Designed and built by Matheson Builders Ltd.

Problem:

The design includes a sedum roof system, which helps the structure merge into the surroundings. Although this offers esthetic advantages, several structural issues must be solved due to the higher weight of this roof style.
 

Solution:

A sedum roof is often more than twice the weight of a regular household tiled roof, therefore Pasquill's design team collaborated with Aberdeen-based Carmeron+Ross to create trusses with enough strength to handle the load. Pasquill was involved in the project from the start, providing a complete design service as well as manufacturing and delivering the roof trusses on time and within budget.


We care about building better.

 

 

Client's Words:

“Pasquill has been superb from design to production, particularly with their planning for the increased structural load which allows greenery to grow, which has resulted in a roof that can withstand loading of 200KG/M2. I’m excited for holiday makers to start enjoying this wonderful holiday home in spring 2021.”
