Kingspan TEK‘s Building System of Structural Insulated Panels have been used to construct Haggerston Castle Holiday Park’s new owners’ lounge
The Northumberland holiday park’s new owners’ lounge has been designed with guidance from Hill Cannon to offer a light and modern multifunctional space with a bar, restaurant and outdoor terrace.
Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners, SIP Build UK, constructed the Kingspan TEK Building System to form both the walls and roof of the lounge.
Chris Duckworth, Managing Director of the company, discussed the specification: “It was vital for the new owners’ lounge to be fully complete and ready to welcome guests by the end of the closure season in March. That gave us five months, over the worst of the winter weather, to get the build completed.
“The Kingspan TEK Building System really comes into its own in these conditions. We pre-cut the SIPs to the project’s exact specifications in our factory. As a result, the delivery was carefully scheduled in advance and once we arrived on site, our team were able to erect the system with virtually no alterations. The panelised design meant there was no need to wait for wet trades to dry and we were able to erect the main shell in just two weeks.
“Once we had the shell erected and a membrane applied, the building was weathertight meaning the first fix could begin internally whilst the external cladding was being applied.”
