The Design

Hanham Hall is the first site in the government's Carbon Challenge initiative. It is scheduled to become one of the first zero-carbon communities in England. It was for this reason that Kingspan TEK® structural insulated panels were selected as the building system for this project. Kingspan TEK® has a history of providing excellent levels of thermal performance and airtightness, and has even been used to reach the Passivhaus Standard. This made Kingspan TEK® the ideal choice for a project with such high energy-efficiency aspirations. To deliver this, the focus was on getting the building fabric highly insulated and airtight. The fact that Kingspan Timber Solutions take responsibility for delivering the technical performance of the building made it possible to ensure that the client got the performance they required. Alongside the excellently performing building envelope, each finished property has been fitted with high-performance timber windows and insulated doors. These have been designed to allow residents to reduce their carbon footprint by 60% without any lifestyle changes.
