Kingspan Controlled Environments Project - WIRTGEN AU Image

Wirtgen

Kingspan worked with Wirtgen in Australia to install a trapezoidal roof with an insulated gutter, panelling and more to create a striking building. Read more.

With no exposed materials and continuous insulation under the roof where there is often a level of thermal shortage, Kingspan’s insulated guttering, roof and wall panel systems working together as a whole have more than met the standards for longevity, thermal and fire performance demanded by Wirtgen.

The Project

The new building is comprised of an office, sales component, warehouse and specialist service workshops for valuable, heavy-duty road construction and mining machinery. Australia’s harsh climate influenced the design brief for this project. Wirtgen knew the building would need to have superior thermal and fire performance capabilities, as well as maximum design flexibility and efficiency. Kingspan panels were chosen for their ability to deliver on these key areas.

Design Flexibility

The Trapezoidal Roof, Mini-Micro and UltraTemp panels, as well as the insulated gutters, can all be integrated to create one complete building envelope solution. This enables total freedom at design level. Perth-based firm T&Z Architects was charged with sourcing the high-performing materials for the new facility. The total compatibility of the Kingspan products provided the architects with design flexibility and Kingspan worked closely with the firm to select panels which suited the requirements of the design brief and fully match the vision of the project.

Superior System Solutions

Due to all the heat and heavy rain that Western Australia experiences, Wirtgen needed a system that would be able to withstand such extreme conditions. Kingspan’s insulated gutters were chosen due to their superior thermal performance and their ability to create an enhanced syphonic drainage system.

These gutters are LPCB certified to LPS 1181 Grade EXT-B and offer U-values of 0.35W/m²K and 0.21W/m²K for 60mm and 100mm thicknesses respectively. The combination of insulated gutters, Trapezoidal Roof, Mini-Micro and UltraTemp panels provide a fully-integrated, high-performing building envelope system solution.

Sustainable Future

Energy efficiency and sustainability are important factors for any industrial building. The Trapezoidal Roof and Mini-Micro panels installed on this project can achieve a Green Guide A+ rating. These panels can reduce business operation costs significantly and enhance sustainability measures.
