Kingspan Light + Air Set to Unveil New Headquarters
On the 13th June, Kingspan Light + Air will be celebrating the opening of its new French headquarters in Saint Priest with an official open day at the new site. The 30,000m2 head office will be central to expanding the company’s capabilities and presence in France and Southern Europe and exemplifies what can be achieved with Kingspan systems.
Kingspan Light + Air was created in 2016 to take the Kingspan Group’s mission of always working to make buildings better even further. Offering a range of high-performance rooflights, ventilation systems and smoke vents, the division’s portfolio completes the building envelope solutions offered by insulated panels and boards and other sustainable construction technologies from the Group.
With a vision to become the global leader in daylighting, ventilation and smoke management solutions for the sustainable built environment, the company strives to help customers create energy-efficient, safe and healthy buildings. Working to build a strong global footprint of manufacturing sites, research and development centres and committed teams around the world, the opening of the new site at Saint Priest demonstrates how it is turning this vision into reality.
The significant investment into Saint Priest marks an exciting step in the division’s development and a starting point for further growth in the region. The new site, which has increased storage capacity, will provide opportunities for the company to deliver their solutions to a wider audience, target new markets and better respond to demand across Southern Europe.
Providing a comfortable and productive work environment for its employees was a priority for the growing business, and so each space in the new head-quarters benefits from natural light, optimal levels of thermal and acoustic comfort and ergonomic workstations. All services, from administration and sales to design and maintenance, will be combined to simplify and enhance workflow between the members of the team, and the interior spaces are designed to be open and collaborative.
Constructed using Kingspan’s comprehensive building solutions, the new Saint Priest site is certified ‘Very Good’ by BREEAM and demonstrates the Group’s ability to provide a complete building envelope that encompasses comfort, technical performance and sustainability.
