After three years of construction, the new production of the renowned Scottish whiskey maker Macallan was completed in May 2018. The company building has a spectacular roof structure, which fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape. The green roof spans a length of more than 656 ft. It consists of five domes with a tapered canopy.

Model

WIEHAG GmbH used RSTAB to perform the structural analysis of the timber roof structure. Moreover, the company was in charge of the planning, manufacturing, and assembly of the roof.

Structure

The overall dimensions of the new distillery amount to 679 ft x 207 ft. The roof height varies from approximately 10 ft on the eave up to approximately 49 ft at the top. Four domes of equal height are arranged within the production; a fifth, higher dome is in the showroom with a flat roof and visitors' center.

The five domes have dimensions of 89 ft x 89 ft in the floor plan. Single-curved, on the top and bottom segmented and trimmed glulam beams are located, which are connected to the welded box sections. Due to the high loading, box sections made of steel were used also for the valleys between the domes. They are cladded with timber panels for optical reasons.

Altogether, 1,800 glulam beams were used in the roof. The entire structure is supported on a steel frame substructure provided by the customer, which is positioned on a concrete floor slab. The roof has an architectural basic grid of 10 ft x 10 ft. The beams are segmented accordingly and follow the inclination according to the position of the dome. In the extension of the domes, inclined and segmented glulam beams are arranged which are connected to the steel frame structure of the facade.
