Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen Board has been installed on a new £1 million state-of-the-art rehabilitation centre for people who have suffered catastrophic sporting injuries.
The Get Busy Living Centre has been created by the Matt Hampson Foundation to provide a place where its beneficiaries can come to receive the latest physiotherapy treatments, spend time with their families and meet and socialise with those in similar situations to themselves. Designed to echo the size and aesthetics of the World War Two aircraft hangar that originally stood on the site, the copper and timber clad building features an open-plan layout with a large mezzanine platform to increase the internal space.
As a charity, it was important that the building was as energy efficient as possible to reduce the long-term running costs. To maximise the energy and cost saving benefits of these solutions, without reducing useable internal space, Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen board was selected, and installed throughout the building envelope.
The premium performance product features a fibre-free core and can achieve thermal conductivities as low as 0.020 W/m.K, resulting in a slim wall build up. It has also been assigned a highest possible Green Guide Summary Rating of A+ by the BRE and has been certified as ‘Excellent’ under the demanding responsible sourcing standard, BES 6001.
It was the first insulation board for use in rainscreen cladding applications to achieve LABC Registered Detail.
