Doing the maths at lane end

Gypsum fibreboard from fermacell was used to dry-line a new primary school to enable the main contractor to accelerate construction.

Some 3,000m2 of fermacell was used throughout the £5.5 million Lane End Primary School in Beeston, Leeds. Designed by NPS for Leeds City Council, DLA Architecture developed the design at construction stage. Chartered architectural technologist Aharon Fegan said: “The original specification supplied to us by NPS specified plasterboard internal wall linings. Interserve then requested this be revised to fermacell. Their main aim was to save time on the construction programme by allowing installation of the internal walls before the building was watertight.” Photo: Interserve Construction
