Healing daylight at Benenden K

alwall® translucent cladding is the

architectural focus of the new £55million development of Benenden

Hospital in Cranbrook, Kent. The scheme, designed by architects C A

Vaughan Blundell with assistance from SR Architects Ltd, has created a wonderfully light and airy entrance atrium designed to welcome and create an enhanced patient and visitor experience with maximised natural daylight. The main contractor was Willmott Dixon Construction. The Kalwall skylights provide additional

light in the large atrium projecting it deep into the interior. They were specified complete with highly insulating Nanogel which achieves an impress U value of 0.28W/m2

helping the project attain a Breeam status of ‘Good’. The skylights have a unique ability

to bathe interior spaces with diffused and glare-free daylight, which creates a stimulating and healthy environment. In addition, their heavily insulated composition eliminates glare and hotspots. Geoff Holden, Senior Technician at C A


Vaughan Blundell comments, “The use of Kalwall represented the best value balance of energy saving and cost and provided us with the ideal way to achieve spatial daylighting within the requirements of Part L”. Kalwall is a popular choice for projects

where performance, long life cycle and low maintenance are required, coupled with an aesthetic finish. The lightweight system

reduces the need for supporting structures while offering the highest protection in terms of wind-borne debris and resistance to impact, abrasion and point loads. Case studies and technical information are available from Structura UK Ltd.
