Challenging times More, different, better Building Schools for the Future and other Government initiatives are creating unprecedented opportunities for educational construction throughout the UK. Yet in CABE’s 2006 Schools Audit, 50% of buildings completed in the previous 5 years were judged either poor or mediocre, with only 4% rated excellent. As a result, commissioning bodies such as Local Education Partnerships are under intense Government pressure to be much more demanding. Regulations have also never been stricter. BREEAM, SEAM and CABE are just three of the bodies demanding...

Exemplary behaviour In 2005 CABE published Picturing School Design to promote design quality. It is no coincidence that two out of the seven case studies featured as exemplars are schools with Kalzip roofs.

Kalzip is the ideal system for the rapidly growing concept of the extended school - a building that combines community facilities with its educational role. Today’s school is as likely to incorporate a community theatre or a public library as classrooms. To do so it must inevitably be a one-off design. Equally important is its need to be reliable, long lasting and low maintenance, because it is going to be used around the clock, 7 days a week. With Kalzip systems each unique set of problems can be met with a unique solution. Outstanding corrosion resistance, noise absorption, thermal...

The architects’ choice of a Kalzip roof system helped to ensure timely completion and Part L compliance, as well as making possible the sweeping curves that make the building so impressive. Kalzip also offered the flexibility to bring distinctive detailing to the fascia, soffit and verge areas, and problem-free interfacing with the building’s traditional masonry construction.
