Swistherm Chosen for Shropshire R&D Project

Alumasc’s Swistherm External Wall Insulation has been used on a £4million project in the heart of Shropshire’s farmland.


Leading British dairy company Dairy Crest, has invested £4 million in a dedicated Food Innovation Centre, designed by architect Jodi Carr from Michael Hyde Associates in Manchester.

The new facility is located on the Harper Adams University campus in Newport, Shropshire and replaces the previous R&D centre that was located on the nearby Crudgington site.

Alumasc’s approved contractor RJ Day Plastering of Market Drayton, installed 233m2 of Swistherm with 80mm mineral wool insulation, finished with Silkolitt 1.5mm Silicone Render, also from Alumasc.


Swistherm is a BBA approved, fully warranted system with an effective life in excess of 30 years. It is fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable, allowing the fabric of the building to act as a heat store, increasing thermal efficiency.
