King’s College School identified a need for a dedicated indoor sports space as the existing assembly hall was considered too small for older pupils. To address this, they chose to demolish a small, underused building to make room for the new Centre. The building work, overseen by Barnes Construction, provides a range of facilities including a multi-purpose hall, aerobic/dance studios and full changing facilities. To minimise heat loss from the building, Hollins Architects and Surveyors specified 172 mm Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels to be installed within the structural frame by Mcveigh Offsite.
Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels are high performance structural insulated panels (SIPs) which comprise a rigid insulation core between two layers of OSB/3. The panels also feature a unique jointing system which helps to reduce air loss through the walls of the structure.
