Enviroblock concrete blocks from Aggregate Industries were selected for a new police facility in Northamptonshire.
With a brief to support the environmental and acoustic requirements of the development, masonry contractors Phoenix Brickwork turned to Aggregate Industries’ Building Products division who suggested Enviroblock Midi blocks.
5,452m2 of blocks were supplied in both standard and paint grade finishes for internal and external walls. At least 73% of the aggregate used to produce Enviroblock is recycled or secondary content, delivering an environmentally responsible solution. This range also offers impressive sound insulation of up to 45 RwdB.
Ian Knight, Regional Manager for Phoenix Brickwork (UK) Ltd, said: “Given the sustainable requirements of this project, from the outset it was clear that we needed to work with a specialist building materials supplier that could help us meet the brief. The Enviroblock concrete blocks supplied by Aggregate Industries didn’t disappoint, providing exceptional environmental and acoustic properties. I’d like to thank Aggregate Industries for the professional and seamless service they provided throughout.”
Jeremy Lee, Sales Director for Building Products at Aggregate Industries, said: “This was a unique development, creating a busy new police facility located on a business park, which will serve as both an operational base and a busy custody suite.
“With strict requirements of the build, it was vital to find a block that could not only minimise the impact of noise from within the building but also help meet the environmental credentials required of a new local government building.
“Enviroblock offers the perfect solution, suitable for internal and external use, in stand and paintgrade finishes, whilst environmentally engineered to meet the demands of today’s society.”
