Too Kool for school

Is there a link between good design and good exam results?

In the latest effort to establish a tangible link between good design and good exam results, architect AHMM was commissioned to design Hull’s Kingswood Academy as part of the City Council’s erstwhile BSF initiative. Kingspan played its part in the design, with its Kooltherm cavity closer, rainscreen board and Thermaroof products specified on external walls and roofs. It won an RIBA national award last year, while the fabric might not ultimately be proven to increase educational performance, it’s definitely increasing the thermal.
