IThe Insh Marshes View point is situated on the Insh Marshes Reserve. Insh Marsh Reserve covers 10 square km of the River Spey floodplain between Kingussie and Kincraig in Badenoch and Strathspey. It is said to be one of the most important wetland areas in Europe, supporting populations of breeding waders including curlew, lapwing, redshank and snipe.
The client was the RSPB and the main contractors were Spey Building and Joinery of Kingussie www.speybuildingandjoineryltd.co.uk Bell Ingram were the consultants. The viewing windows used a special 10mm thick outer pane presenting logical difficulties with transport and handling which were further compounded by the worst weather for many years. However the end result is both attractive and functional ensuring locals and visitors can enjoy the Insh Marsh view for many years to come.
The Skibo swimming pool is one of the Carnegie Club’s most iconic features. Built for Andrew Carnegie in the early 1900’s by Mackenzie and Moncur on the banks of Loch Ospisdale, the steel framed, glass paned pavilion has been loved by visitors to Skibo for over a century. The existing building was suffering from subsidence and decay, so the decision was taken to demolish and rebuild in a manner that closely resembled the original. For us this entailed the production of 46 round top windows and 5 round top doorsets, all to match the originals and yet to incorporate high performance glazing and ironmongery.The main contractors were Rok Construction Inverness, and the nature of the contract meant we were heavily involved in all stages of the design of these items together with the supply and liaison during installation. We were also asked to produce various of the detail mouldings required at the finishing stage together with the complete paint finish to all items supplied.The result is a truly beautiful building and a project we are immensely proud to be a part of. The Carnegie Club swimming pool will be enjoyed for many years to come.
Over recent years, many of our windows and doors have been used in timber buildings. These can be designs with full eco credentials or simply as a way of enhancing the outside appearance.The accompanying photographs show many typical examples. Generally the cladding material is sourced from Russwood at Newtonmore, with whom we have a long working association and their site can be accessed @ www.russwood.co.uk
