Swavesey Village College

The Kingspan TEK Building was used to create the building envelope of a contemporary, energy efficient sports hall and classroom block at Swavesey Village College.

The Project

The new buildings, which form part of Swavesey Village College’s redevelopment plans, were designed by Lyster Grillet & Harding.

To allow the facilities to be completed to a tight deadline, and to minimise the building footprint, the Kingspan TEK Building System was installed by Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners, Lowfield Timber Frames.

The project needed to complete within short construction programme dictated by the EFA funding programme and the school calendar. We specified the Kingspan TEK Building System to form the envelope of the classroom block, which enabled a rapid turnaround of design, costing and progression to site, to allow completion of the second phase for Easter 2016.

The panels arrived onsite pre-cut to the project’s exact specifications. This bespoke approach almost eradicated onsite alterations and, combined with the panelised system construction, allowed the installation team to establish a fast and predictable installation programme.
Our experience of designing projects using the Kingspan TEK panels from the outset allows us to exploit the inherent flexibility of the system, greatly simplifying the incorporation of clerestory windows, adding drama to the corridors in addition to, on a practical level, daylight and natural ventilation strategies without compromising the buildings’ performance.
