Levenmouth Education Campus

Category: Case study
Written by Laura McClung

The development of the new Levenmouth Education Campus combines Levenmouth Academy with Fife College in Buckhaven, Fife. The Campus creates 23,000m2 of education space with the college and school sharing a range of core facilities.

From the outset, the Project Design Team required a system that could achieve a strong thermal performance to meet the projects thermal target of 0.20 W/m2k for the walls. To meet Zurich Insurance fire requirements, the original specification called for a non-combustible insulated render system, however as an alternative, Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) certification to LPS 1582 standard would also be viewed as acceptable. As the Dryvit Outsulation system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) core held the relevant LPCB certification to satisfy insurer requirements with a scope of specification that met the projects outlying technical, aesthetic and commercial requirements it was deemed as the most suitable choice of system. 4,800m2 of the Outsulation External Wall Insulation system was installed. Completed 2016.

The new £21.5 million Windmill Community Campus has been developed to house Viewforth High School and Rosslyn Primary School as well as a range community facilities that will service the people of Kirkcaldy.

The new purpose built Viewforth High School accommodates 600 pupils and has state of the art teaching spaces with integrated technology, sports/fitness facility and library. Rosslyn School was designed in partnership with the school’s specialist teachers and includes a large, fully equipped sensory room along with quiet rooms where intensive interaction can be facilitated with minimal distraction.

A non-combustible insulated render system was required to meet the project Insurer’s fire requirements. As an alternative, Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) certification to LPS 1582 standard would also be viewed as acceptable. As the Dryvit Outsulation system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) core held the relevant LPCB certification to satisfy insurer requirements with a scope of specification that met the projects outlying technical, aesthetic and commercial requirements it was deemed as the most suitable choice of system. Completed 2016.

The new Waitrose and Great Cornish Food Store in Truro are located in new purpose-built premises leased from the Duchy of Cornwall.

The Duchy was heavily involved in façade design of the new store, Dryvit SHAPE Prefabricated Features, manufactured off site, were offered as a light weight, cost-effective solution to reproducing stone Pediments, cornices, pilasters and capitals and other architectural features around the perimeter of the development. Cast concrete Pillars were finished with our speciality finish Stonemist, to deliver subtle tones of colour with special aggregate used to pick up the natural sunlight; reflecting like the glitter of natural stone.

Over 1,500m2 of Dryvit's Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was installed incorporating high performance Low Lambda expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation to upgrade the energy performance and enhance the appearance of the large panel cladding system. Completed June 2016.
