Roof gravelling project with a view of Lake Thun

We were mandated by Bauimpuls to replace the gravel on the flat roof of the Faulensee fishing base. The spectacular location on the shore of Lake Thun fully made up for the wind and the rain.

As part of the renovation of the complete building envelope, the roof was also refurbished and prepared for the installation of a solar system. To reinforce the substructure for the future solar panels we used 20 m3 of 8–16 mm shingle.


Gravel on the flat roof


As the fishing station can only be reached on foot or with a small vehicle, our suction and blower truck was parked on a slightly higher street that can be used by trucks. The 120 m pipe had to be run through the forest and then dropped on the roof.

Although this difficult installation was a huge challenge, it didn't present a problem for our experienced colleagues and strong machine.

Into the forest


We would like to thank our customer for their trust and the good collaboration.
