Thermoblock combats cold bridging for new leisure facilities at Fife Holiday Park


The construction of a new swimming pool and play park at a caravan and holiday lodge complex, set in a stunning location on the coast of Fife, is making full use of the unique insulating and load-carrying attributes offered by Marmox Thermoblocks. With its fully enclosed and well insulated steel framed structure, the new swimming pool and play park will offer year round enjoyment for not only those staying in the caravans and lodge homes, but also the wider public. A key element to this energy saving design is preventing cold-bridging occurring around the perimeter to the building’s in-situ reinforced concrete floor where it meets the external walls, with its 140mm thick block inner leaf, infilling the cold-rolled steel columns. The site agent for Pert Bruce Construction, Mark Macpherson, commented: “This is the first time I have seen the product, but the bricklayers found it quite straightforward to install and our company has also been using Thermoblock on a housing site in Brechin for Angus Council.” Pert Bruce Construction is also making use of the Marmox MSP 360 sealant as an adhesive to complete the stepped overlay joints between the individual Thermoblock units.

The Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony and Terrace System has been installed as part of the award-winning Here East development. The design called for three large recessed balconies running up to 13 metres in length.


Chris Oatridge, managing director at Kaicer, discussed the specification: “The recessed balconies are an important element in the exterior design, not only adding outdoor spaces but also helping to soften the overall appearance. By using the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony and Terrace system, we were able to insulate the balcony floor to an exceptional level with an insulation depth of just 85 mm.”

A new build estate of bespoke modular houses is benefitting from the outstanding thermal performance of Kingspan Kooltherm K110 Plus Soffit Board. Swan Housing Association is aiming


to reduce the operational CO2 emissions of each of its properties to 2.6 tonnes per year by 2021. With this commitment in mind, the Kingspan Kooltherm


K110 Plus Soffit Board was specified for use in the houses with recessed entrances, in order to effectively insulate the spaces above. This outstanding thermal performance allowed the target U-value to be met with a slim thickness of insulation.

A Northern Ireland apartment block has been given a new lease of life with the installation of a combination of products supplied by Sto. The 15-storey Carnet House building on Belfast’s Ardcarn Estate now boasts a U-value of


between 0.15 and 0.23W/m²K thanks to the installation of a Sto high- performance and cost-effective insulation system, finished with a special self-cleaning external render. This BBA certified insulation system has European Technical Approval ETA-03/0027, and it has an efficient single-leaf construction that provides excellent thermal performance while also protecting the external wall surface from weathering.

ADF OCTOBER 2019 WWW.ARCHITECTSDATAFILE.CO.UK STO acoustic solution hits the right note


Sto has helped to create a balanced acoustic environment at the world-famous Royal Opera House in Convent Garden. The StoSilent Distance monolithic, seamless acoustic solution has been installed within the new entrance foyer and front-of-house spaces as part of the recent ‘Open Up’ refurbishment to make the


Royal Opera House a more welcoming building. “We had used it previously and been very pleased with its ability to provide a correctly balanced acoustic environment, and also create a clean, minimalist appearance, both of which this historic arts building deserved,” comments Tom Shell from project architects Stanton Williams.
