Kingspan Insulation‘s roof and floor insulation products have comprised a crucial part of the iconic building envelope for Scotland’s first museum of design.
The design for V&A Dundee is a simple phenomenal against the city’s waterfront.
Its angular form, wrapped with horizontal concrete panels, pays homage to the dramatic cliffs of the country’s east coast.
BAM Construct UK and Dundee City Council are overseeing construction of the £80 million museum; due to open this September, providing 1,650 square metres of world class exhibition facilities.
The building, rated ‘Excellent’ at its design stage BREEAM assessment, sees renewable energy generating technologies meet a highly insulated construction.
The high-performance roofing products can achieve thermal conductivities as low as 0.022 W/m.K and are compatible with most mechanically fixed single–ply waterproofing systems.
Kingspan Insulation’s specialist tapered roofing design team offered a detailed layout scheme for the products, ensuring the build-up met the target thermal performance requirements with a minimal construction depth.
In addition, both products have been approved to Factory Mutual Research Standard 4470: 2016 for Class 1 Steel Deck Roof Assemblies and LPS 1181:Part 1.
To insulate the ground floor throughout the building, a further 5,300 square metres of Kingspan Kooltherm K3 Floorboard was installed.
As part of the project’s BREEAM commitments, care was taken to guarantee the materials specified met the highest standards in responsible sourcing.
All three Kingspan Insulation products installed have been assigned the highest possible BRE Green Guide Summary Rating of A+.
The insulated boards, manufactured at Kingspan’s facilities in Herefordshire and North Yorkshire, are also certified as ‘Excellent’ under the demanding BES6001 Responsible Sourcing Standard.
