News: Kingspan provides green future in Rotherham


The Kingspan Envirodek structural green roof solution from Kingspan Insulated Panels has been used on a striking new office building in Rotherham. Built by Millstone Building for parent company the Horbury Group and employing architects Race Cottam Associates, the building is now the Horbury Group’s head office. The Crofts has helped to continue the regeneration of the local area. The use of Kingspan Envirodek has allowed the construction of a rooftop plant space to help the project blend with the local environment. Ken Elvin from Millstone said: "We are definitely happy with Envirodek. It gave us a quick, efficient environmentally sustainable solution for the roofing structure and we would certainly consider using the product again." Along with the rooftop garden, the high spec office development has features such as comfort cooling and energy saving controls. The RiDO-run Moorgate Crofts, which stands adjacent, set the standard for environmentaly aware construction. Moorgate Crofts is a mix of traditional and modern materials, and uses innovative, environmentally friendly technologies such as geothermal heating, recycled building materials and also has a roof covered with more than 8,000 plants.
