Seven-year-old zero carbon school demolished due to leaks


I remember going on an RIBA visitor site visit during construction and as the SIPS panels were being erected. If you were to visualise the rhombus forms of the roof meeting along the hip lines of a thick pair of SIPS panels, I can remember querying at the time how the join was to be sealed as daylight would often be seen through the gap, i.e. they fitted where they touched. We came away unimpressed and fearful for the insurance policy.
