Timber Frame Visitor Centre
Built in 2012 this visitor centre is truly one of its kind, the Visitor Centre has been built to meet Passive House Standards and is currently one of the only centres in Shropshire to do so.
The Visitor Centre, located centrally in Telford Town Park offers a state of the art learning centre and meeting room with outdoor exclusive space including equipment to assist in learning or presenting to a group. Facilities include toilets, baby change and vending machines located inside.
Utilising a 142mm Kingspan TEK wall envelope system, an additional insulation layer of Kingspan (TW55) was specified at 60mm thick. A Glulam Portal Frame package was designed, engineered, machined in house to create the required amount of stability for the clear open rooms required as a part of the design concept. The Kingspan Unidek Aero 240-7 SIPS roof system was used.
