The Project

Kingspan Timber Solutions assisted with the construction of this new conservative club in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, which featured several challenging aspects such as a cantilevered canopy. Kingspan Timber Solutions’ factory-insulated LOGIC+ panel system was chosen for this project. As an offsite method of construction, it helped in providing a highly energy-efficient structure and also a fast build programme.

The Design

This project was challenging as it featured high floor loadings to cater for the ability to use the first-floor space as a dance studio, large cantilevered terrace roof canopy, and exposed feature trusses with a glazed atrium to the main hall. The design also features a restored listed wall which is integrated into the front façade of the new building. The building's contemporary design was carefully considered as it had to be sensitive to the building's historical context. As the building is located within a Conservation Area, a sensitivity to local vernacular also had to be factored into the design. The offsite nature of timber-frame construction facilitated a fast build time and predictable build schedule. Kingspan LOGIC+'s pre-insulated nature also helped the structure achieve an efficient thermal performance. The new structure features bright, contemporary spaces which bring a new approach to the Conservative Club typology. It has been designed for energy efficiency, taking a holistic approach to the building fabric and integrated renewable technologies.
