Innovative design saves time and money at Errol Primary

Innovative design from Ochil Timber has successfully saved both time and money on the roof of an extension at Errol Primary School.
The school was extended to provide additional classroom space for early years and nursery pupils, and Ochil designed and supplied pre-insulated roof cassettes for clients Glulam Solutions. The 55 roof cassettes, containing 342 high performance SpaceRafters, were fabricated offsite at Ochil’s factory in Denny and incorporated an innovative ‘top hung’ detail. This eliminated the need for joist hangers and meant that the roof cassettes could be craned in and dropped snugly into place between the glulam and steel elements of the structural frame, in an efficient and cost effective manner.

However, this was not the only benefit of Ochil’s design. MD Andrew McAree explained: “By providing a top hung detail and pre-insulating the roof cassettes offsite we not only saved our clients lots of time and money, we also created a much safer working environment, eliminating the need for manual work at height.”

Commenting on Ochil’s roof design, Graeme Milne, Business Development Manager of Inverurie-based Glulam Solutions said: “Ochil took full design responsibility for the roof cassettes, and the installation process was quite seamless.”
