Delivered under the Priority Schools Building Programme, Kingsteignton Primary School combines the architectural expertise of Scott Brownrigg with Galliford Try's award-winning Optimum Schools principles and Innovaré's acclaimed offsite technology.
Through an offsite manufactured hybrid system, the development seamlessly interconnects education zones, delivering adaptable spaces which promote teaching and learning. The design champions the use of Innovaré's award-winning i-SIPS - a BBA Approved Structural Insulated Panel System, which on this occasion was successfully combined with perpendicular steel and timber beams together with pre-cast stairs and the external pre-fabrication of the M&E system.
The only one of its kind manufactured in the UK, i-SIP panels can measure up to 6x3 metres - few build methods can match the speed and performance levels achieved with these large format panels. The structure was completed in just 14 weeks and the enhanced performance benefits will reduce ongoing maintenance and energy costs for the lifetime of the building.
From concept to completion - the development delivered both cost and programme certainty, ensuring the new £5million state-of-the-art school opened on time and within budget.
