Kingspan Industrial Insulation - Cambridge University - Maxwell Centre

Kingspan Kooltherm’s FM Pipe Insulation has been installed on the University of Cambridge’s centrepiece for industrial partnership with the physical sciences and engineering. The £26 million Maxwell Centre, opened in 2016, achieved credits towards a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating thanks in part to the Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation that was specified for the project.

The Maxwell Centre objectives are to carry out world-leading research in the physical sciences, developed from both near-term but also long-term industry objectives. The 5,000 m² centre houses a pioneering research facility that focuses on a range of areas, including scientific computing, condensed matter, advanced materials, and the physics of biology and medicine.

10,000 m² Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation has been installed on the building. The product offers superior thermal performance, and comprises a fibre-free phenolic insulation core, externally faced with an aluminium vapour barrier foil.
