The Complete Fire Rated Full Height Thermal Envelope

Lancaster House transformed with Insulshell


With Insulshell officially launched to the market last year, its design flexibility was put through its paces during 2012, with the development of ‘The Pavilion’ – a temporary construction at Lancaster House. Conceptualised as an extension to the existing building to accommodate the UKTI delegations during last summer’s sporting events, architects Waugh Thistleton specified a vast glazed area with a timber floor and roof.

Tasked with delivering this on-site, events contractors Innovision were faced with the challenge of constructing the single storey 4m x 50m structure against tight timescales and an agreed budget.

Offering a full turnkey solution to this challenge, Insulshell designed and manufactured a fully demountable system that could be re-deployed after the event. Manufactured in 18 sections, the system was fully pre-fabricated off-site with the glazing installed on-site. Taking just four weeks to manufacture, two weeks to install and four days to demount, the flexibility and speed of construction of Insulshell were well demonstrated.
