The next level


When a rise in the local population forced Caldmore Community Primary School to double its intake of pupils, architects at Walsall Council were faced with the challenge of extending the building in the school grounds. Kingspan OPTIM-R formed a key part of their solution, ensuring a smooth transition from the first-storey classrooms to an outdoor “play deck”.

To minimise heat loss, a Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System was specified along with tapered Kingspan Styrozone H 350. Unlike conventional insulation products, Kingspan Insulation’s OPTIM-R vacuum insulation panels feature a microporous core, which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope.
