Durrington High School

The Kingspan TEK Cladding Panel was specified at Durrington High School to help target a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating and to achieve excellent fabric performance against a tight project deadline.

The Project

Durrington High School can now accommodate an additional 210 students thanks to a double extension. Situated at the heart of the school, the new building includes science laboratories, a performing arts studio, general teaching accommodation, and ancillary accommodation.

The lightweight Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels suited the project as the large format build meant that significant areas of elevations could be installed in one application. This meant that the building could quickly be made weatherproof, allowing internal trades to start work sooner.

Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels are available as a BIM object. They can be downloaded for free from the NBS National BIM Library which can offer U-value calculations for full wall constructions as well as assisting with the project plan, clash detection, wastage reduction, and costing. Utilising BIM helped to ensure a quick but safe build.
The build programme needed to be achieved on a short timescale, and the very challenging lead in times made it trickier to get from order placement to construction commencing on site.

With a Green Guide rating of A+, the Kingspan TEK Cladding panel directly helped the project obtain credits in the materials section of the BREEAM assessment. It also indirectly helped in the energy efficiency part of the assessment with the highly insulated core of the 142 mm Kingspan TEK Cladding Panel achieving U-values of 0.20 W/m²·K and better. Its OSB/3 facing and unique jointing system help to minimise unnecessary air loss.
