Capvond Project

Capvond's commission to work on the Cuillin Hills Hotel

Overlooking picturesque Loch Portree on the Isle of Skye, the Cuillin Hills Hotel has been sympathetically extended by Compass Building and Construction Services Ltd of Inverness. Marc Swanson of Compass gave Capvond the remit to replicate the detailing of the original 19th century features which characterise the roofs of the dormers on the front elevation of this stunning four star hotel.

Unique moulds were created to provide one piece composite mouldings which would not only replicate the traditional designs, but also integrate seamlessly with the timber frame extension built by Compass.

Composite GRP mouldings were produced to mimic the triangular façade of the dormer roof, while polyester castings were made to replicate the sunflower feature on the pinnacle.
