Kingspan TEK delivers forward-thinking flexibility in luxury housing

Latest News Fri, Aug 16, 2019 1:26 PM

The Lower Mill Estate, a development of sustainable holiday homes in the Cotswolds, is offering holiday homemakers the best in bespoke, energy efficient properties with the help of the Kingspan TEK Building System. The diverse selection of residential properties have benefited from the Kingspan TEK Building System’s scope for individual design and off-site construction, which has improved construction efficiency.

Lower Mill Estate, constructed by Conservation Builders Ltd, is a community of beautiful holiday homes including award winning property designs, which has continued to produce exemplary models of sustainable construction with each new phase of development. The Habitat First Group’s vision was to create a residential nature reserve that would provide security and the freedom to escape the demands of urban life. The resulting development, immersed in the idyllic woodlands of the Cotswolds, offers residents tranquillity and relaxation through fully customisable, energy efficient properties. The Kingspan TEK Building System has enabled clients to enjoy a truly bespoke experience, where they can be involved in the very early stages of designing their property.

The latest phase of the ongoing development makes use of Kingspan TEK panels for the walls and roofs of the new units. The Kingspan TEK Building System, which comprises a high-performance insulation core sandwiched between two layers of OSB/3, was selected as it allowed a high level of design flexibility and exceptional out-of-the-box fabric performance, as well as creating minimal site waste as kits are designed and cut off-site.

Mike Fleming at Glosford Timber Solutions, a Kingspan TEK Delivery Partner, who designed, cut and erected the Kingspan TEK system on the project, commented:

“Knowing Kingspan TEK is an accredited product and is well manufactured is a huge benefit, as is the flexibility it offers whilst maintaining excellent insulation values. Dealing with client variations can be challenging, especially on a project of this scale. All units were bespoke with complex designs incorporating integral balconies and roof terraces that had to be designed into the Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) frame, but through our experience with the Kingspan TEK Building System we were able to meet all of the resident’s requests.”

The outstanding thermal conductivity of the Kingspan TEK Building System’s insulated core and OSB/3 facings produces a highly energy efficient building envelope. This supports the development at Lower Mill Estate to satisfy sustainable construction standards and creates diverse properties with lifetime energy efficiency in mind.
