Wooden roof of Macallan Distillery resonates authenticity and honesty


meadow-covered hills hide the undulating roof of the distillery. The contemporary building combines a wooden roof with glass and steel. Fast, light and green Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) was used as part of the prefabricated roof. The building includes a Visitor Experience

centre, three still houses and a mash house with a common roof and fully glazed wall. This reflects the wishes of the Macallan Distillery, a premium brand, whose single malt whisky production dates back to 1824. The goal was a contemporary facility celebrating phasing, authenticity and honesty. “Enthusiasts can see how whisky is produced, because the machinery can be viewed from the fully glazed Visitor Experience area. The architecture elevates the beautiful copper stills into something special,” says Toby Jeavons, Project Architect


he Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience in Craigellachie, Speyside in Scotland is a stunning sight. Five


at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, a renowned international architectural practice responsible for the architecture. The natural materials add to this. “We wanted to celebrate the honesty of


materials rather than hide the roof structure with a ceiling,” continues Jeavons.


Prefabricated roof structure The roof consists of a wooden waffle structure, supported by a steel structure. The wooden parts were manufactured at the Wiehag factory in Austria. The glulam beams feature Kerto LVL used as cheeks on both sides, and triangular Kerto LVL panels have been used as roof panels. “Kerto LVL is a very good engineered wood


material, because you can trust the material dimensions,” says Johannes Rebhahn, Sales Director International Timber Projects at Wiehag, who was responsible for the roof construction. The construction of the Macallan Distillery


Fast and agile over rough terrain


BAL have launched a new rapid-setting levelling compound – BAL Level Fast. BAL Level Fast lets you get on with tiling sooner with floors ready to walk on after only 30 minutes and ready to tile after only 45 minutes! Fast and agile over rough terrain, it is suitable over underfloor heating and timber


floors from just a 3mm bed depth, BAL Level Fast is engineered to ensure a longer wet edge (10 minutes) and anti-shrinkage technology to provide the perfect substrate for tiling small domestic projects.

The Royal College of Music in London has been given an extra layer of protection in the form of Roofshield, which has long been recognised as one of the highest performing roofing membrane solutions, providing a pitched roof underlay, which is both air and


vapour permeable. D. Harkin chose Roofshield air permeable roofing membrane from the A. Proctor Group. The product’s exceptional performance has been demonstrated in the toughest locations around the world. Its characteristics allow even very complex pitched roofs to breathe, without the need for air gaps or secondary venting.

with ISO BLOCO T-max Improved compensation of differential movement in timber frame structures is provided by ISO-BLOCO T-Max from construction foam tape specialists, ISO Chemie. Designed for multi-storey timber frame structures, ISO BLOCO T-Max compensates for the large amount of differential movement which can occur between the internal timber wall and roofs and the external brick or block work. Engineered to provide 39mm of movement and ensure the joint remains weather tight to a minimum of 450 Pa, equivalent to Storm Force 10 on the Beaufort scale, the tape is the best in class for movement accommodation. It also offers a highly effective ‘fit and forget’ perimeter weather and air tightness seal for windows, particularly at heads, cills and under the roof eaves, while remaining permeable to trapped water and water vapour – in the same way a breathable style material works on a building facade.

and Visitor Experience took only six months. It was a carefully coordinated operation, because the roof contains some 3,600 beams and 2,500 roof panels. “In general, offsite construction is a


great way to save construction time. When prefabrication such as cutting is done in the factory and connections have been designed to be simple, the easier, safer and more cost-effective life on the site is,” Rebhahn continues.
