This modular building project involved the design, supply and installation of a multi-storey science and office block for Royal Holloway University. As the building is classed as a permanent building under current UK planning guidelines, we had to be very conscious of the current regulations that needed to be achieved, passed and certified in order to conform to building control. The university also required a 20 k/n floor loading in the ground-floor lab area.
To achieve the 20 k/n floor loading in the lab area and minimise onsite work and cost we installed a new Kingspan product, X-deck. By lowering the floor beams and increasing the foundation width, this allowed us to complete the entire floor back in our manufacturing facility. This meant that we simply needed to lay the floor covering on site to make the room fully operational.
