Buildings stay Kool

Woodberry Downs (1)

Premium performance products from Kingspan Insulation have been used to insulate new high and low rise buildings as part of one of London’s largest regeneration programmes.

An eight-phase regeneration plan for Woodberry Down will replace outdated concrete tower blocks with more than 5,500 brand new homes. Architect Hawkins\Brown specified Kingspan Kooltherm K12 Framing Board and K15 Rainscreen Board for Kick Start Sites 2 and 5 within the masterplan, comprising 710 residential units and over 1500 m2 of commercial space. Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen Board was installed as part of the anodized rainscreen cladding used on the top storeys of many of the blocks. These sections extend beyond 18 metres and it was, therefore, essential that the product offered excellent fire performance.
