Basildon Estate Customised With Kingspan Kooltherm

Basildon Estate Customised With Kingspan Kooltherm

The Beechwood West estate, under construction as part of one of the UK’s most ambitious regeneration programmes, is benefitting from the outstanding thermal performance of Kingspan Kooltherm K110 Plus Soffit Board.

The estate is the first step in Swan Housing Association’s 10-year development plan for Basildon.

The new neighbourhood of 251 family houses, is designed to bring affordable, custom-built homes to the popular commuter centre. Pollard Thomas Edwards has created a variety of designs which buyers can choose from. Once selected, the homes are constructed at scheme partner, NU living’s, factory using modular approaches.

With a commitment to the reduction of CO2 emissions in mind, the Kingspan Kooltherm K110 Plus Soffit Board was specified for use in the houses with recessed entrances, in order to effectively insulated the spaces above.

Swan Housing Association is aiming to reduce the operational CO2 emissions of each of its properties to 2.6 tonnes per year by 2021. This will be achieved by taking a fabric-first approach to the construction of new homes and implementing retrofit measures on existing properties, such as replacing boilers, windows, doors and roofs.

The Kooltherm K110 Plus Soffit Board is part of Kingspan’s K100 range of rigid insulation boards which achieve a thermal conductivity of 0.018 W/m·K across all board thicknesses. This outstanding thermal performance allowed the target U-value to be met with a slim thickness of insulation, ensuring the aesthetic integrity of Pollard Thomas Edwards’ contemporary designs could be maintained.

Installers were able to simply cut the lightweight boards to size with a fine-toothed saw and install them within the modular buildings ready to be transported to site.

Kingspan Kooltherm K110 Plus Soffit Board produced at Kingspan Insulation’s Pembridge manufacturing facility is certified ‘Excellent’ to the demanding BES 6001 responsible sourcing standard and are manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
