Kingspan Access Flooring For London School Renewal Project

Kingspan is installing 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 to serve over 200 additional pupils.


The steel encapsulated Kingspan RG3 and FDEB floor panels are being installed in the Maths & Science, Skills Centre, Arts & Technology, Communications, and Dining, Drama & Music buildings. The panels will 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 is recycling all panel off-cuts from the project. The steel and particleboard in the panels are being 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 are also being returned to the factory for recycling.


The design and build contractor for the renewal project is Lend Lease Construction (EMEA) Ltd, which is carrying out the work on a phased basis through to March 2014. The design team is being led by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.
