In relation to the initial request in 2014, our team designed and produced the required roof trusses with a sophisticated splice connection detail. This allowed the client to fix the two trusses together at the apex on-site themselves. The design also provided them with the ability to disassemble and separate the two halves of the trusses once the festive season had ended, allowing them to safely and conveniently store the structure until the following year. Due to versatility and strength, Lapland UK are able to rotate which building the trusses are used for each year.
In 2016 and 2017, further orders were placed consisting of 80 roof trusses each year, which were used in the construction of a variety of the roofs in the Elven Village. The design of the restaurant was to be rustic and the trusses to be left exposed within the roof space for visitors to see. We understood the requirements for quality and aesthetic appeal, whilst also providing an efficient turnaround and didn’t fail to deliver. It was important to our client that the trusses would withstand the test of time and be protected from disease and fungus, so we ensured that they were treated using our specialist timber treatment. This ensured the trusses had full protection against fungal decay and insect attack.
Lapland UK initially requested roof trusses that they could easily dismantle, store and reuse. Due to the very seasonal nature of their business, this was exceptionally important to them. Our design team were required to incorporate a sophisticated splice connection detail when creating the design solution for the project. The dedication and adaptability that we demonstrated during the initial task along with our reliability and commitment to customer service prompted Lapland UK to trust Minera Roof Trusses with their future orders.
