Pasquill hits top C

29 July 2021

Pasquill has designed and manufactured a complex roof for Skylark House, a bespoke, C-shaped eco-house in the Scottish Highlands.

Services provided include consultation during planning and design, along with manufacture and delivery of JJI rafters, ancillary items and glulam beams for the impressive 460m2 home, which includes three bedrooms, a swimming pool and panoramic views.

The project required a JJI mono pitched roof to create a modern and clean aesthetic. Pasquill was involved in the building’s design from the very early stages, providing guidance on the detailing, metalwork and further design considerations where required.

A 3D render of the roofing project was created to enable the client and their contractors to get a more tangible view of the roof. The image also enabled details for any web stiffeners and backing blocks to be clearly analysed.

In order to provide a cost-efficient solution for the client and speed up delivery, it was agreed that the JJI would be supplied uncut. Pasquill was on-hand to support the client throughout the entire duration of the build, and despite Covid-19 challenges it also managed to arrange a socially distanced site visit to meet with the client, project manager and joiners.

“It was great to be in involved in such a brilliant project,” said Pasquill’s senior designer, David McDonald. “The collaboration between the whole team involved worked really well from the start and has resulted in stunning home in a stunning location.”
