A unique new-build property in the east of Scotland has put Alutecs Evolve Deepflow range of aluminium rainwater systems to the test, with its contemporary design and unusual roofline.
The 500m2 selfbuild property in Angus, Scotland, is owned by David Maxwell, Managing Director of George Martin Builders Ltd and was designed by Fraser Middleton, Director at ARKTX, Chartered Architects. It incorporates four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a curved roofline and even a section of guttering with a positive gradient to accommodate the front entrance, challenging Alutecs systems to adapt to the unusual design.
David commented "The design and location of my house presented two main challenges for the rainwater systems but I was confident that Alutec could provide the appropriate solution. The first challenge was the curved roofline, which we overcame by using a sequence of straight 600mm segments and angles that, I can honestly say, have gone beyond my expectations in creating a beautifully seamless sweeping curve.
The second challenge was the strength and durability needed from the guttering due to the heavy snowfall commonly experienced in the region, and from experience I knew that Alutecs products, despite being exceptionally lightweight, were robust enough to withstand the Scottish elements".
