Written by Super User

Opened in August 2013 the £21m Vale Centre for Health and Care in Alexandria will incorporate three GP surgeries, a dental unit, teaching facilities and a range of NHS services including physiotherapy, podiatry and speech therapy. Designed by Archial, in conjunction with main contractor Laing O’Rourke Scotland, the building is designed as a series of spokes radiating from a central reception space, with the spaces between landscaped. The Vale Health Centre has approximately 3,000m2 of the Dryvit Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system installed. Dryvit's comprehensive Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) fire approvals were instrumental in satisfying insurer requirements for the project, which allowed the cost effective expanded polystyrene (EPS) based Outsulation insulated render system to be specified for use on the scheme. Completed: 2013.

This Tesco mixed use development includes an 80,730 sq ft Tesco store, 73 one and two bed flats, a community medical centre and 941 town centre car parking spaces. The scheme comprises a number of green initiatives in line with Tesco’s aim to reduce the amount of energy its developments use. Dryvit's external wall insulation (EWI) systems specified on the project had to meet the energy performance criteria to satisfy building control for both commercial and residential elements as well as satisfying NHBC requirements for the residential part of the build. A total of 7,000m2 of Dryvit insulated render systems were installed. Outsulation EWI was adhesively fixed on solid substrates to the commercial elements while the residential element used the Outsulation Rail EWI system on a sheathed lightweight steel frame structure. PMRB finish in a Sandpebble Fine texture was used in three colours on the scheme with white and a bespoke red and blue colour match to the represent the Tesco branding. Completed 2009.
