Royal College of Art Appoints Modular Construction Specialists
The steel framed structure will be erected commencing beginning of March, at which point MAS will supply and fit Kingspan TEK cladding panels, which feature an insulated core to provide the highest levels of thermal efficiency. These high-performance panels are quick to install, creating a weathertight shell in just 3 to 4 weeks, and their slimline design maximises the floor space available to the College. MAS will also be providing the floors and staircase, which will be constructed offsite and lifted into place.
Chris Tonkin, Managing Director at MAS said: "Following a competitive tender exercise, we were awarded this contract in conjunction with our partners, HOCA Practice (architects)
We're thrilled to be involved in this project and look forward to commencing work at the end of February. It's a very quick turnaround for a building of that size (some circa 180 sqm), but MAS are well equipped for the task."
