The Project

Located in Frankton, just outside of Queenstown, Wakatipu High School is the final school in the Public Private Partnership 2 (PPP2) project, covering the construction and maintenance of four new schools across New Zealand which also includes Ormiston Junior College in Auckland, and Haetea Community Campus and Rolleston Secondary School in greater Christchurch.

We were after a product that will deliver high thermal performance to meet NZ Green star requirements, a slender yet compressive roofing system which will not compromise the architecture outcome, and lastly a product that has been ‘tried and tested’.  All this led us to the Kingspan trapezoidal KS1000RW roof.

Designed and built as innovative learning environment (ILE), all schools have been built to the same template and specification.  All feature Kingspan’s Trapezoidal KS1000 RW roof and wall panel, which is made up of a PIR insulation core sandwiched between two layers of metal, delivering high thermal performance (R values of up to 5.35), minimal air leakage and the elimination of interstitial cavity condensation and cold bridging, vital for a building that is to accommodate a lot of people.

Product of Choice

Architect Logan Hooi from ASC Architects comments “Wakatipu High School is the fourth of the PPP2 schools that we specified with Kingspan trapezoidal KS1000RW panels. At the start of the project, we were after a product that will deliver high thermal performance to meet NZ Green star requirements, a slender yet compressive roofing system which will not compromise the architecture outcome, and lastly a product that has been ‘tried and tested’. All this led us to the Kingspan trapezoidal KS1000RW roof.”

Ease of Installation

Ease of installation and site handling is also an attractive feature of the Trapezoidal KS1000RW roof and wall panel. Keith Ivey of CS Roofing Queenstown Ltd says, “installing a single component roof over a large area is faster and easier than a conventional roofing system. With Kingspan’s simplified building process, the panels can be installed in a greater variety of weather conditions, leading to faster building close-in”.

Business and Property Protection

Kingspan Insulated Panels are FM ApprovedThe Kingspan panels used on this project meet the highest property loss prevention product testing and certification standards. The FM mark is recognised by the world’s leading regulatory authorities.
