Fast Track Construction with Optimal Solution

The project had a tight delivery program of only 12 weeks. Completing the project in such a short duration was only made possible by forming the building envelope using the single component easy to install Kingspan Insulated Panel systems. Kingspan’s Quadcore KSD1000 AWP panels were selected to be used on the external walls and KSD1000 RW trapezoidal panels formed the roof of the structure. Both panels meet and exceed the thermal insulation requirements of Dubai Municipality, providing a sustainable and thermally efficient space for Komatsu to operate.

Insurer Approved and Civil Defense Compliant Panels

In addition to the thermal performance, compliance with Dubai Civil Defense’s strict Fire and Life Safety Code was another important factor for the client to utilize Kingspan Insulated Panels for the project. Kingspan Insulated Panels is the first manufacturer to achieve Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) approval in the UAE for its complete range of wall and roof panels which makes it the manufacturer of choice for insulated panels with regards to regulatory compliance.
