Swistherm Helps Leisure Centre Scoop BREEAM Award

Swistherm External Wall Insulation from Alumasc has played a key role in the sustainable design of the award-winning Bletchley Leisure Centre. 

The centre recently won the Bespoke Category in the BREEAM Awards which recognise and reward the design and construction of the highest scoring buildings certified under BREEAM.

Alumasc’s approved installer Jordaya Contracting Ltd, installed 1800m2 of 160mm EPS insulation as part of the Swistherm insulated render system. The insulation was finished with Alumasc’s Silkolitt 1.5mm silicone render in blue and white to achieve an attractive ‘rolled’ effect finish.  

Commenting on the project, Paul Sanders of Milton Keynes Council, said: “As a leading and expanding ‘New City’, we see sustainability measures as vital to developing successful communities and facilities in Bletchley. Achieving BREEAM Excellent was absolutely central to our requirements for the new leisure centre. This has provided a significant reduction in running costs.”
