Trees as a source of inspiration for a new school building

August 2018

How do you design a school extension with four classrooms, a new library, an open-air theatre and a central assembly area and open-air teaching space so that it reflects the spirit of our time in every respect? In the Maasniel district of Roermond, a project inspired by the natural features of trees was developed. Rockpanel was closely involved in its implementation.

Learning and co-existing in a new world
The Coppen firm of architects opted for the symbolism of the tree to give the existing traditional school building a new look and place the focus on modern teaching methods. “Teaching children is no longer simply a matter of passing on factual knowledge,” says architect Hans Coppen. “It’s about exchanging ideas that make these young people enthusiastic about a new world. And it’s not the world we think we know.” He sees the tree primarily as an assembly point where meetings take place, stories are shared and ideas are exchanged. “The new central part of the building is a great example of this. It really functions as a tree to which the entire surrounding area is connected.”

Sparkling colours and a natural design bring the school to life.
If you want to introduce something new, you have to make new, smart choices. The Coppen firm of architect took up the challenge and opted for Rockpanel Woods and Rockpanel Brilliant façade boards to lend shape to their ideas. In the small wooden huts made of Rockpanel Woods, the children find quiet and security after tiring group activities. The new classrooms, clad with Rockpanel Brilliant, literally add sparkle to the tree environment, especially when the sun shines. The boards were sawed to measure and they stand out thanks to a broad spectrum of colours, including orange, beige and various shades of green, which can also be found in the bark and the moss on the trees in the surrounding area. The overlapping edge around the windows makes the youngest children feel extra protected. And this protection can also be found in other areas, since Rockpanel boards are naturally fire-resistant, long-lasting and easy to maintain. Qualities that are, of course, greatly appreciated, certainly in a school environment like that in Maasniel.

(Extra) Fire safety meets design

July 2018

(Extra) Fire safety meets design

Safe and secure, the advanced features of the A2 (FS-Xtra) board from Rockpanel delivers a new dimension to your exterior cladding design.

An elegant combination of fire safety with the broadest range of aesthetic finishes and RAL/NCS colours, ensures your building meets or in some cases exceeds European fire safety standards.

Say no to Class 0
When discussing the fire safety of high-rise buildings in the UK, there is a great deal of confusion on the requirements for facade cladding panels. Central to this situation is the so-called ‘Class 0’, stemming from outdated national building regulations. Class 0 is still used in regulations to define the quality of facade cladding products, even while the mandatory European system on fire classification requires other, stronger specifications.

The Euroclass system
The Euroclass system defining the fire performance of building products came into existence in the year 2000. It was introduced by the European Union (EU) to remove trade barriers between individual member states. Before the introduction, manufacturers had to test building products in individual countries. All of them had their own unique testing methods to define the fire performance of a product.
The fire testing and classification standards for construction products have been harmonised in European Standard EN 13501-1. The European Reaction to Fire classification system (Euro classes) is the EU common standard for assessing the qualities of building materials in the event of a fire. Euro classes arise from classification systems for ‘reaction to fire’ performance of construction products.
