Alumasc Swisrail used on Pioneering Health Park

Posted by nicola perrins

Alumasc’s Swisrail External Wall Insulation (EWI) system has provided an NHBC approved facade solution for the new Keir Hardie Health Park in South Wales. 

Designed by the Bristol studio of architects BDP, the health park in Merthyr Tydfil is scheduled to open to the public in September 2012 and will be the first of its kind in the UK, bringing together GP and primary care services, outpatient clinics, therapies, mental health services and social care on one site. 

Swisrail is a flexible, ventilated system which was ideal for application onto the complex detail of the scheme’s design.  Alumasc’s approved contractors the Joyner PA Cymru Ltd installed the EWI system comprising 150mm of mineral wool insulation over a lightweight steel frame. The render finish specified was Silkolitt silicone render in a white, rolled texture to complement the building’s contemporary, clean lines. The installation has resulted in the building achieving an impressive U-value of 0.21W/Km2.
