ISD Solutions helps Turners to achieve green goals

Forming the weathered external skin of the building, this will be the first UK chilled distribution warehouse to incorporate Kingspan’s latest IPN-QuadCore technology, a new insulated panel core which delivers a thermal improvement of up to 20% over standard PIR insulated panels.

A new super energy efficient cold storage warehouse extension for Turners (Soham), one of the UK’s leading temperature controlled storage and distribution companies, is to feature a state-of-the-art insulated single envelope designed and installed by composite panel specialist ISD Solutions.

Forming the weathered external skin of the building, this will be the first UK chilled distribution warehouse to incorporate Kingspan’s latest IPN-QuadCore technology, a new insulated panel core which delivers a thermal improvement of up to 20% over standard PIR insulated panels.

Located at Turners’ existing site near Boston in Lincolnshire, the 5,500m2 extension will provide capacity for 5,500 pallets, plus packaging space and loading docks, all chilled to 1°C. It is led by project designers FJB Systems, who have formulated a range of features to meet Turners’ environmental goals.

These include the use of natural refrigerants and reclaimed heat, rain water harvesting to provide all grey water requirements, LED lighting and controls to reduce energy consumption, roof top photovoltaic panels and rapid doors. The air-tight fully insulated single envelope construction proposed by ISD Solutions using Kingspan IPN-QuadCore panels, adds further environmental benefits and cost savings both during the construction phase and energy savings to reduce operational running costs over the life of the building.

Managing director of Turners, Paul Day, said: ”For this project, Turners needed a specialist contractor with the proven ability to work in collaboration with other trusted stakeholders on a complex project that delivered significant environmental and sustainability benefits. ISD had the creativity to offer innovative solutions and the expertise to warrant their industry reputation.'

Tony Wall, managing director of ISD Solutions, said: “We are delighted to be working with FJB Systems and lead contractor H H Adkins on this ultra-efficient cold store development. Single envelope composite panel construction is fast outpacing traditional building methods in warehouse and cold store developments. The air-tight thermally efficient building skin can be constructed around 20% faster than traditional builds and significantly reduces the need for secondary steelwork. Add to this Kingspan’s new improved QuadCore insulated panels, backed by the industry’s first 40 year thermal and structural guarantee, and it’s a win win for Turners in terms of environmental performance.”

With responsibility for overall project design, FJB Systems has calculated that the new panels alone would reduce heat loss through the fabric of the external envelope by as much as 50kW.

ISD Solutions has been on site since April and expects final completion and handover of the project this autumn.
