Kingspan Access Floors - Hendon

Kingspan has installed 14,500 sq m of access flooring as part of a major transformation of the historic Metropolitan Police training headquarters in Hendon, London.

Kingspan has installed 10,000 sq m of RMG panels throughout the building in offices, classrooms and an IT room, and 4,500 sq m of DRF heavy grade panels in the building’s podium level where areas such as the kitchen and dining facilities are subject to increased use.

Delivered by Mace, the Peel Centre project has involved replacing outdated, underused facilities with a new training centre. The centre can train 120 students at a time and will result in a 50% reduction in annual running costs compared to the previous facilities. The development features a 560 seat auditorium, memorial garden, new parade ground and live firing range.

Kingspan came top of Mace’s site safety league table in October and November, and one operative, Domas Vrubliauskas, won the individual health and safety award for December.
