Kingspan Cost Optimal
Energy Saving Building Solutions

With Kingspan Cost Optimal Energy Saving Building Solutions, it is possible to achieve minimum capital and lifetime operations costs for a building by taking into account sustainable products and building methods at an early stage of the project.


For over 40 years, we at Kingspan, have pushed the boundaries of the building envelope, creating the world’s most advanced, high performance envelope systems. Through our knowledge, innovation and world-class technical expertise, we can provide future-proofed, Cost Optimal Building Solutions and help architects and designers to create affordable, energy efficient and sustainable buildings.



Kingspan has carried out extensive research in conjunction with AECOM, a world leading building design consultancy, to identify the positive impact of more efficient building envelopes for buildings in various parts of  the UK.


The work that we have done on Cost Optimal Energy Saving Building Solutions is focussed on the UK, however the principles and processes are still relevant for other markets. Please contact us if you would like some more information.


Why do we need Cost Optimal Energy Saving Building Solutions?

Today, it is not just about meeting regulations, it’s also the issue of rapidly rising energy prices that further compounds the need for reducing the lifetime operational costs of a building.


With a holistic building design that concentrates on the design of the whole building, rather than just focusing on a specific area such as the building envelope only, it is possible to design more accurately, more efficiently and at optimum cost.


See the diagram below for the details of how everyone benefits from this approach:



What are Cost Optimal Energy Saving Building Solutions?


Building designs that seek to reduce:

  • The whole building capital cost (Capex); and
  • The whole building lifecycle operation cost (Opex)

Buildings designed with Cost Optimal Building Solutions provide many compelling advantages to the different property stakeholders: they consume less energy, they emit less carbon dioxide, and they are environmentally responsible over their lifetime, but the perception is that these type of buildings carry substantial capital cost premiums.


Kingspan Cost Optimal Building Solutions can achieve minimum capital and lifetime operation costs for a building.  We  offer:

  • Less Capital Costs: Using an enhanced building envelope with a holistic design approach
  • Higher Return on Investment: Using a capital cost uplift to provide significant operational cost reductions and offer rapid return on investment;
  • Lifetime Operational Cost Savings: Using systems that maintain their thermal performance over time
  • A Future-proofed Building: Cost Optimal Buildings drive higher rental income, maximise occupancy levels, reduce operating costs and enhance asset value to provide ‘futureproofed’ buildings;
  • Enhanced BREEAM Ratings: Additional BREEAM credits can be achieved

We have worked conjunction with AECOM, independent building design consultancy to create a number of case studies of different building types and the impact that adopting a Cost Optimal Energy Saving Building approach can have. Download the case study document here or on the left.
