As the original school was costly to repair and maintain, the decision was made to demolish and construct a new site that would combine three Glossop and Hadfield schools. The new site was delivered by main contractors, Henry Brothers, with the capacity for 1,000 11-16-year olds and 200 sixth formers, and the potential for further expansion. Overseen by M&E Contractors, William Bailey, 7000 lm of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation was installed by delivery partners, Gill Insulation.
The pipe insulation was used in concealed areas such as in the ceiling voids, on droppers and within low-level boxings, in addition to the plant room and boiler room. With industry leading thermal conductivities as low as 0.025 W/m·K, Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation provided a slim-line solution for reducing heat transmission from the pipework. This gave the installers more room to work when fitting the product in tight areas and allowed the clean, high quality aesthetic of the internal spaces to be maintained.
