The project

Lagg Distillery, located on the Isle of Arran in Scotland, is a new build whiskey distillery which opened its doors to the public for the first time in the autumn of 2019.

The brief

The client was eager to create an iconic landmark and echo the contours of Arran with a roof scape that would blend into the environment. In order to ensure all expectations were met, Bauder worked closely with the architect, Denham Benn, during the design and specification of the project.

A metal roof deck laid on steelwork formed the structure that would incorporate a warm roof build-up with a lightweight sedum green roof finish to resonate with the landscape and withstand the prevailing winds.
