Kingspan TEK

Futuristic farmhouse constructed with Kingspan TEK

  • 29 May 2018

A contemporary farmhouse in rural Scotland has achieved the ideal balance of impressive visuals and energy efficiency, with no small thanks to the Kingspan TEK Building System.

Situated between the outstanding sights of Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills, Lomondmuir Farmhouse was designed by architect Scott Strachan and constructed by THCL as a “turn-key” building contract using the Kingspan TEK Building System.

THCL specified the Kingspan TEK Building System after the requirements for an energy efficient home, which had the potential to be expanded in the future, all within their budget, was discussed.

Malcolm Thomson, Director of THCL, talks through the thought processes: “We suggested that the house was built using the Kingspan TEK Building System for two key reasons. Firstly, it takes less time to build due to the fact the panels are pre-cut to the project’s specification.

“Additionally, the excellent insulation performance of the System will offer significant future cost savings on energy bills.”

The Kingspan TEK Building System consists of high performance Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). The excellent fabric performance of these panels has resulted in the building achieving the gold label for sustainability under Technical Handbook Section 7 (sustainability) of the Scottish Building Standards.

The one and a half storey home currently consists of three bedrooms at ground level and can be expanded in the future to include an 80 square metre first floor.

The incredible spanning capabilities of the Kingspan TEK Building System panels has meant the first floor can feature vaulted ceilings, which create a unique additional living space.
