Haggerston Castle: SIP Cladding Project

About the project

ARCHITECT: Hill Cannon


PRODUCTS: 142mm Tek Panel

The Haven holiday park is situated within the lush former grounds of Haggerstone Castle, with its award-winning landscape gardens and picturesque lakes.

Designed with guidance from Hill Cannon to complement its lakeside position, the new owners’ lounge offers a light and modern multifunctional space with a bar, restaurant and outdoor terrace. Kingspan TEK Delivery Partners, SIP Build UK, erected the Kingspan TEK Building System to form both the walls and roof of the lounge.

In alignment with Haven’s dedication to preserving the natural environment, the excellent fabric performance of the Building System should also help to reduce the facilities’ energy requirements.

Chris Duckworth – Managing Director, SIP Build UK, said:

“It was vital for the new owners’ lounge to be fully complete and ready to welcome guests by the end of the closure season in March. That gave us five months, over the worst of the winter weather, to get the build completed. The Kingspan TEK Building System really comes into its own in these conditions.

We manufactured the panels to our usual high standards and coordinated the panels and packing to eliminate wasted time searching pack after pack for the correct pieces. The panelised design meant there was no need to wait for wet trades to dry and we were able to erect the main shell in just two weeks.

Once we had the shell erected and a membrane applied, the building was weathertight meaning the first fix could begin internally whilst the external cladding was being applied”.
