The single structure dwelling boasts a floor area of approximately 950m2, which is exceptionally big in comparison to the average domestic dwelling size of around 90m2.
Delivery of products was a challenge due to its island location. All trusses had to be precisely designed so they could be transported to site. The trusses were first delivered to the docks in Aberdeen, shipped to Kirkwall on a ferry and finally delivered to site from the docks.
The roof was split into three separate deliveries a couple weeks apart. This allowed the joiner to assemble the trusses a section at a time.
Pasquill supplied attic trusses, standard trusses, mono trusses and caps and glulam beams for this project, and the completed attic roof comprised doglegs, three-way intersections, hip end, bay roofs and fully vaulted areas.
A 3D visualisation model was provided in addition with the drawings, at no extra charge. This benefitted the customer as they were able to get a better understanding of the placement of the different types of roof trusses.
