Alumasc Green Roof Helps Gallie Craig Blend In
The new Gallie Craig coffee shop at Drummore in Stranraer has the most spectacular position, perched above cliffs
overlooking the Mull of Galloway. In view of the outstanding natural beauty of the location it is not surprising that
the project had to go through rigorous planning authorisation before construction could begin; with a green roof
system the obvious choice to crown the building.
A ZinCo green roof system from Alumasc was installed, bringing the visual and environmental benefits of a naturally
planted roof. The roof build-up consists of a Derbigum high performance warm roof construction with a root resistant
cap sheet, overlaid with SSM45 Moisture Mat, Floradrain FD40 drainage board, a filter sheet and a specialist roof
substrate to support the vegetation.
The architect IB MacFadzean, and the client, knew that Alumasc offered a complete green roof system and had
extensive experience with installations of a similar nature to that they proposed. The green roof was installed by
Alumasc Approved Contractor, SW Roofing of Dumfries, however the actual planting was installed by the client
contributing to a cost effective solution.
The complete roof system was installed without hindrance and now enables the building to achieve a remarkable
level of harmony with its environment - a situation which will persist for many years to come with the comprehensive
Alumasc Warranty relating to the Derbigum Waterproofing covering both material and workmanship, providing longterm
assurance of reliable performance for the roof.
