Kawneer Has Been Part of the Creation of An Award Winning Distillery

Kawneer the leading UK manufacturer has been a part of the creation of an award winning distillery. The business delivered their Architectural aluminium glazing systems for the development. The distillery is expected to be pioneering in its transparency. Kawneer used their AA®110 curtain walling into the project as well as the 350 severe duty entrance doors onto the Dalmunach Distillery. The creation of the distillery is said to have cost £30 million and it is located in Scotland on the banks of the River Spey. The distillery was designed by Archial Norr on behalf of the Chivas Brothers who commissioned the project. The distillery has been created in order to replace the former Imperial Distillery. This will be the 15th Scotch whisky distillery that is operated by the company. The architectural company, Archial Norr didn’t want to design an industrial building that bore resemblance to shed, they wanted to create a building that highlights the manufacturing process of the whisky in a way that was easy to follow. Therefore the new Scottish whiskey distillery was designed to reflect the malt mills, malt bins, mash tuns and all of the other equipment required in in an environment that is bright and spacious. The design was also cleverly put together after being inspired by a sheaf of barley, which is the central ingredient in Scotch whisky. The distillery was constructed with the help of Kawneer and by using the most up to date innovations and environmental expertise. This means that the site uses heat recovery technology. The crisp modern building uses Kawneer curtain walling in order to create screens in the Mash house and Still room. The curtain walling that was used on the project contains over 10 square meters of glass that weighed around 540 kgs in total. Kawneer managed to advise and install the most appropriate materials for the building.
