Alder Hey in the Park offers a completely new vision for healthcare provision. The 270-bed facility offers a much warmer environment for patients and their families, with large outdoor spaces on every floor and easy access to play areas.
With the project also aiming to become “the most sustainable hospital in the UK”, limiting energy loss from building services was obviously a key consideration. As a result, Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation was specified for pipework across the facility as Project Director, Ged Couser, from BDP explained:
“We wanted the hospital to achieve a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. The Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation product has a BRE Green Guide A+ rating, as well as being manufactured under a BS EN ISO 14001: 2004 scheme. This assured us that it would meet our expectations.”
Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation is the most thermally efficient insulation material commonly used on pipework with thermal conductivities as low as 0.025 W/m·K. The product also offers a best in class reaction to fire performance, with a Euroclass rating of BL,s1,d0.
