Kingspan TEK gets sporty at new pavilion

The Kingspan TEK Building System of structural insulated panels (SIPs) has provided the shell for a minimalist pavilion at Eton College’s Willowbrook Outdoor Sports Centre.

The single-storey building, designed by Lewandowski Architects, provides changing rooms, toilets, a kitchen and a roof-top viewing platform. Wood was a key part of the material palette with charred timber fitted for the outer cladding and birch-ply boards fitted internally. This approach extended to the structure, with Bentley SIP Systems using the Kingspan TEK Building System for the walls of the structural shell.

Kingspan TEK Building System is formed from SIPs with a high performance, rigid insulation core autohesively bonded between two OSB/3 facings. The 142mm thick panels were selected for the walls of the pavilion.

The Kingspan TEK Building System’s jointing system ensures insulation continuity between the panels, helping to minimise repeating thermal bridges. In combination with the OSB/3 facings, this jointing arrangement also facilitates the creation of highly airtight buildings.
