Off site centre for Network Rail
Kingspan Off-Site’s Architectural Façade System (AFS) has been used to construct the Network Rail East Midlands Control Centre in Derby.
Based on a brownfield site and incorporating renewable technologies, the centre will control the signalling and operations for the entire East Midlands rail network.
The non load bearing Kingspan Metro AFS through-wall panels were precision engineered to meet the specific architectural requirements of the three storey building, one of which was to create a structure with the ability to withstand a blast force.
A quantity of 200mm enhanced stud centres and steel plate linings were specified for the AFS panels, which were all delivered to site ready for installation.
