Project Overview

Having assisted in the pre-tender design development for this new sports pavilion, Bentley SIP Systems were named subcontractors for the structural shell. Incorporating structural steel within the SIP structure facilitated fully retractable glazing to the function/ catering space along with enclosed changing and storage areas.

Client: Eton College
Architect: Lewandowski Architects
Main Contractor: Feltham Construction

  • Kingspan TEK structural shell
  • Client appointed subcontractor
  • Timber cladding
  • Full height retractable glazing
  • Usable flat roof incorporated into the structural design

“The Kingspan TEK Building System was specified by Lewandowski Architects at the pre-tender stage and we worked with them from that point to the erection of the building shell. The System was chosen both because of its excellent insulation properties and because it could facilitate a fast-track construction programme. As we pre-cut each panel to the project’s specific requirements, we were easily able to incorporate features such as the structural steel which supports the retractable glazing to the front of the building.”
