The works carried out at Cloncaird were recently shortlisted, and ultimately successful for the prestigious Murdoch Award in 2006.
The Murdoch Award is the construction industry's most prestigious award for leadwork. Cloncaird Castle is a privately owned residence, listed as a Category A Building by Historic Scotland.  
Under the supervision of Architect Tom Waddell of Thomas Design Architects, the project initially consisted of extensive leadwork to the gutter, flashings and coverings to new dormers in the stable block of the castle.
Whilst on site, we were approached to look at a proposal to cover an existing courtyard with a glass roof to form a modern atrium that would be used for entertaining. The further combination of flat roof area and gutters proved to be a significant challenge in interfacing traditional leadwork installation techniques with a modern roof design in glass.
The renewing of the flashings and weatherings required particular attention to detail because of the condition of the existing of the stonework, resulting in the apron flashing at the head of the slated roof being turned over the apex of the cope and secured with a continuous copper clip. This detail was used throughout the project that involved more than 20 tonnes of sheet lead in Codes 6 & 8.  See Gallery pics here (440KB pdf).
