Airflow Distribution Company Case Study York University

Case Study: York University

Location: York, UK

Building Use: Education

Project Type: New Build

The space saving qualities of the Kingspan KoolDuct pre-insulated ducting technology made it the ideal choice for the £9 million flagship National Science Learning Centre based at the University of York.

The National Science Learning Centre, funded by the Wellcome Trust, has been designed to improve the way science is taught in Schools, bringing back excitement and enthusiasm for the subject.

A total of 2,500 m2 of Kingspan KoolDuct was specified for the project by National Design Consultancy and installed throughout the building by H&C Moore.

Otto Seeger of H&C Moore said “This was the first time we have used KoolDuct and we were delighted not only with the product but the excellent customer relations we received from Kingspan Insulation. We have continued to use the pre-insulated ducting system for other projects of a similar nature.”

Unlike traditional sheet metal ducting, which needs to be lagged with insulation as a second operation, the Kingspan KoolDuct System not only saves space by requiring only a single fix installation, it also makes it a high speed option for projects where time is critical.
