A cost effective, time efficient and sustainable solution to the continuing redevelopment of Anglo European School, Ingatestone, Essex.

The Project

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.

Sector:
Education
Client:
TJ Evers
Architect:
Lyster Grillet & Harding
Completion:
June 2014
Build System:
Kingspan TEK Building System

The Challenge

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.

Background

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.

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.
