Bagot Climbing Goats Admire the View from Café Rooftop

Bagot Climbing Goats Admire the View from Café Rooftop

Location: Fontburn near Rothbury
Project: Café
System: TPE single ply mechanically fixed
Product: Spectraplan SM120 dark grey
Contractor: Redhead Roofing
Scope: 300m2

Rarely included in building contracts are specifications allowing roof top access for climbing goats. But that is exactly what Newcastle-based contractor Redhead Roofing LLP faced after winning a contract to install the green roof system for a new build visitor centre and cafe, called Goats on the Roof, at Fontburn near Rothbury.

IKO Spectraplan SM120 dark grey was specified and installed to the 300m2 roof area, ready to receive a green roof system. The system provides a sustainable green roof covering and provides the perfect playground for a rare breed of climbing goat called the Bagot, resident at Fontburn.

Fitting a system which allows goats to access and climb around the roof top certainly is a unique job and the most unusual challenge faced by Redhead Roofing in the company’s 25 year history.

Spectraplan is only available in the UK from SIG Design & Technology and can only be installed by an IKO Single Ply trained and licensed contractor.
