Lightweight Timber,


Rocherpan, Veldrif

This project was carried out by Scheltema in 2011 before Roofkit came into existence.

Packaging all light-weight building materials into ”kits” for delivery and installation was a precursor to the concept of Roofkit – launched a few years later as a separate brand within Scheltema & Co. (Pty) Ltd.

Of interest, the requirement was for Scheltema Roofing to construct light-weight timber units in an environmentally sensitive “sandveld” environment with as little disturbance to the area as possible. An example of one of the many environmentally friendly themes was the harvesting of rain water via the roof.
