Kingspan have installed over 14,000m2 of access flooring in five new buildings that are part of a £29 million renewal scheme by Wandsworth Borough Council at Burntwood School in London.
The steel encapsulated Kingspan RG3 and FDEB floor panels have been installed in the Maths & Science, Skills Centre, Arts & Technology, Communications, and Dining, Drama & Music buildings. The panels generally have a Finished Floor Height of 150mm to allow for under floor services.
As part of Kingspan’s commitment to the environment and waste reduction, the company recycled all panel off-cuts from the project. The steel and particleboard in the panels were separated in a £250,000 shredder at the company’s Hull site and then recycled so they can be put back into the manufacturing process. Empty pallets were also being returned to the factory for recycling.
The design and build contractor for the renewal project is Lend Lease Construction (EMEA) Ltd and the design team is being led by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.
