Recent increases in the school’s intake meant that the existing lunch facilities, located away from the main buildings, needed to be upgraded. Studio LIME proposed a simple pitched roof design, using brightly coloured cladding to encourage students to enjoy healthy school meals inside. The construction work was completed by Jones Building Group during term time. This was one of the reasons the Kingspan TEK Building System was specified.
Kingspan TEK panels comprise a high-performance insulation core sandwiched between two layers of OSB/3. They were designed and factory cut to the project’s unique specifications by Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners,SIP Build UK. This offsite production process minimised site waste and allowed the panels to be quickly erected. Once a breather membrane was applied to the outer face of the panels, the structure was watertight allowing internal trades to begin work.
