Kingspan Timber Solutions was commissioned by principal contractor T J Evers to provide a cost effective, time efficient and sustainable solution to the continuing redevelopment of Anglo European School.
The project architects developed a design with some tricky features including; extensive clerestory windows, a large glazed entrance hall and area of two storey curtain wallings. This was in addition to the normal complications that schools pose of disproportionate collapse, enhanced acoustic performce, large span floors and high loads.
As a result of the impending demolition of an existing classroom block that was no longer fit for purpose, a series of classrooms, seminar rooms, storage and toilet facilities in a two storey block were created using the Kingspan TEK® building system.
The new facilities combined TEK® prefabricated structural insulated panels which were used to construct both the walls and roof, with 304mm deep open metal web joists to achieve the floorspans and facilitate easy installation of services.
The new building with its contemporary design, will benefit from a highly efficient envelope with a 142mm TEK® panel and 20mm of TW55 high performance rigid insulation fixed internally. Providing an off-site building solution enabled a shorter build programme to ensure minimum disruption the students.
Kingspan TEK™ Building System is our structural insulated panel (SIP) offering. Our best-performing build system is recommended to achieve Passivhaus standard.
Kingspan LOGIC's closed-panel wall consists of sustainably sourced structural timber insulated with premium performance Kingspan Kooltherm phenolic insulation.
Kingspan ULTIMA™ Building System offers exceptional performance, delivering high levels of thermal efficiency and airtightness with a slim profile, giving you more internal space.
Self building is one of the most exciting events in a lifetime, but it requires lots of decisions. What's within the walls is just as important as how they look on the outside.
