National Theatre

The Kingspan KoolDuct System has been used during the National Theatre’s £80 million redevelopment of its iconic building, located next to the Thames in the South Bank area of London.

The Project

Designed by architects Haworth Tompkins and project managed by Lend Lease, this prestigious ‘NT Future’ redevelopment will see the National Theatre build on its current success by transforming the facilities it offers audiences and artists and enhancing its relationship with the environment The NT Future development also aims to reduce the Theatre’s energy consumption by at least 20%.
Airtech Ductwork Systems Ltd installed the Kingspan KoolDuct System throughout existing and new areas of the National Theatre. The pre-insulated ductwork system was also used in conjunction with fire rated galvanised sheet steel ductwork, using fire dampers as the transition between the two.
