Seaton Jurassic Visitor Centre

The Kingspan TEK Building System and Kingspan TEK Cladding Panel have been installed as part of the new Seaton Jurassic visitor centre in Devon, forming the gateway to the region’s historic Jurassic Coast.

The Project

Over 185 million years of history are captured within the rock formations of the Dorset and East Devon coast and in 2001 the site was officially recognised as England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Seaton Jurassic brings the rocks and fossils to life by taking visitors on a journey through time with exciting, interactive exhibits spread across three pods.

Product:

Delivery Partner:
Glosford SIPs
Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners, Glosford SIPs, erected the Kingspan TEK Building System to form the walls of the centre. The firm then installed the Kingspan TEK Cladding Panel on to a steel frame for the centre roof.
BREEAM ‘Very Good’ was a central requirement on the project and the Kingspan TEK products delivered the excellent thermal and airtightness performance we needed in a single operation. As a result, we were able to reduce costs and significantly increase the speed of construction compared with a traditional stud wall approach.

Kier Construction was the main contractor on the centre, which is operated by the Devon Wildlife Trust. The project has been chiefly funded by East Devon District Council, Devon County Council, Seaton Town Council, Heritage Lottery Fund, Coastal Communities Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, Devon Wildlife Trust, Blue Marine Foundation, Fine Family Foundation and the Seaton Visitor Centre Trust.
