The Vale Centre for Health and Care - Alexandria

System: Outsulation
Finish: PMRB
Texture: Sandpebble Fine
Sector: Healthcare

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.
