The Gateway to Lewes

The Kingspan TEK Building System has been used on a narrow plot, featured on Grand Designs.

The Project

The Kingspan TEK Building System has helped to alleviate the pressure on an iconic build in Lewes, East Sussex, as featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

Clad in CORTEN rusted steel, architect Sandy Rendel’s striking design blends the contemporary tastes of homeowners Stephen and Anita Yeomans with the industrial heritage of the site, a former loading bay for the chalk mined at the nearby quarry.

In order to realise this adventurous aesthetic on such a narrow plot, the Kingspan TEK Building System was specified by Peter Carter, Director of Myriad Construction. This allowed the construction team to establish a fast and predictable installation programme.
As the Kingspan TEK Building System could be used in small modules rather than in pre-assembled elevations, the construction team had no issues manoeuvring around the tight site. In addition to saving time and therefore cost at the construction stage, the superior thermal performance and airtight jointing of the 142 mm thick System panels should also help to reduce the building’s long-term heating requirements.

Peter Carter - Director, Myriad Construction
Owner, Stephen Yeomans, expressed his delight at the finished building, stating that “built on time and on budget, the house has exceeded my expectation in terms of the quality of the build and the ease of construction. This is both testament to the skills of the team involved and the quality of the materials used.”
