Graven Hill, Plot 287

Project Brief

Graven Hill has become one of the leading communities for self-built and custom homes in the UK, allowing self-builders the opportunity to create houses of all shapes and sizes. Within the Graven Hill development, all properties must conform and comply with a Plot Passport, which entails stringent fabric performance properties and requirements. The Graven Hill Plot 287 project, involved the design, supply and installation of a new build SIPs structure for a private client.


In order to comply with the Plot Passport requirements, the Kingspan TEK® Building System was specified as the primary envelope material for this private self-build project. One of the advantages of the Kingspan TEK® Building System is that the panels provide excellent thermal properties, whether out of the box or with additional insulation, U-values can easily be achieved using this unique building system. In relation the Graven Hill Plot 287, the Kingspan SIPs panels allowed for faster erection and installation in comparison to traditional alternatives. Kingspan TEK® SIPs panels are pre-cut prior to delivery to site and by adopting this offsite construction approach, enables a simple and accurate installation on site.


Final Result


The unrivalled spanning capacity and prefabricated design of the Kingspan TEK® Building System provided a magnitude of benefits for this self-build project. In addition to using the SIPs to form the external walls, the Kingspan TEK® Building System was also utilised to form a ready-made warm roof space for the pitched roof area. The unique jointing system ensures that there is effective insulation continuity throughout the whole building envelope at the same time as reducing the air-leakage rates. The use of SIPs also allowed our client to form large spacious rooms along with the formation of large window openings, taking advantage of the exposure of natural light to flow throughout the house. From commercial, education and self-build projects, the Kingspan TEK® Building System is a dynamic system that can be tailored to achieve project specific requirements whilst boasting the multiple benefits of offsite construction.
