Carillion successfully install Corus Kalzip roofing system on Snowdon's famous tourist attraction
Snowdon’s new mountain-top visitor centre is one step nearer completion after Carillion installed a Corus roof recently.
Despite limited space and weather conditions described as 'horrendous', Carillion installed Corus Kalzip’s Hi-Point off-site roofing system on the structure, located on the peak of Wales' highest mountain.
The £8.3m Hafod Eryri visitor's centre, designed by Ray Hole Architects, replaces the previous ‘Snowdon Café’, once described by Prince Charles as “Britain’s Highest Slum.” It was erected in 1935 and demolished in 2006.
The visitor's centre must be completed by summer 2008 for it to qualify for European funding.
