Visitors to the Old Royal Station are treated to optimum levels of natural light when dining alongside a replica of the Royal Carriage of Queen Victoria.
The Old Royal Station ceased operations in 1966, and to celebrate its rich heritage was used as a tourist information centre and museum for 15 years.
In May 2015 however, the B-Listed building was devastated by fire, with the flames damaging 90% of the structure including the original roof and rooflights.
As a local landmark responsible for bringing tourism into the area, Aberdeenshire Council committed to a £3m restoration of the station.
As part of the rebuild, the team had to reinstall rooflights that were as similar to the originals as possible, but to meet modern building regulations, they also required a system that was more energy efficient.
VELUX modular skylights were chosen for their sustainability credentials and exceptional energy performance as well as their slim profiles, which enabled the rooflights to sit as flush as possible with the roof.
The VELUX Commercial team worked closely with Morgan Sindall to specify bespoke sizes and ensure a perfect fit on site.
