This is a new build built on the grounds of an old building that had been demolished. The ground levels were excavated to approx. 1.8m below ground level and then brought back up in compacted layers in prep for the foundation raft slab with integrated ring beaming cast in. The kit was an injected panel system integrated into a timber glulam and then a multi-layer build up roof finished off in metal profile roof clad. The external kit was clad in a Marley Cedral cement lining board and multiple coloured rock panels and the windows are an Aluminium clad triple glazed timber window giving very little future maintenance requirements in the coming years. The building is heated by underfloor heating via gas boilers and power is supported via solar panels mounted on the roof. The building achieved an Air seal test far in excess of what was specified and ventilation is controlled by both natural and mechanical means.
This is a building that Burns Construction were proud to have been a part both in the construction of and handover to the Council and the community of Huntly.
