Seaton Jurassic

Kingspan products have been installed as part of a new visitor centre in Devonshire.

The Project

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

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.

Outstanding thermal performance

The highly insulated core of the 142 mm Kingspan TEK Cladding Panel and Kingspan TEK Building System panel can allow them to achieve U-values of 0.20 W/m2.K and below, whilst their OSB/3 facing and unique jointing system help to minimise unnecessary air loss.

“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.” - Stephen Pring, FORM Design Group

Quick construction

The Kingspan TEK panels were pre-cut to the centre’s precise requirements by Glosford SIPs, virtually eliminating on-site alterations and allowing the installation to be completed ahead of schedule in just two and a half weeks.
