In-patient unit in St David’s Hospice insulated with Kingspan

Kingspan Insulation products have been installed throughout the envelope of the new in-patient unit at St David’s Hospice Care in Newport, creating a warm, comfortable environment for patients to receive first-class care.

The 15-bed unit adjoins an existing day hospice, providing specialist support for patients with complex symptom management needs, end of life care and occasional respite care. Each room features a wet room and a private terrace, providing views of the newly-planted wildflower meadow and hills beyond. The Welsh Government has provided £3 million towards the cost of the unit which has been constructed by Andrew Scott Ltd.

Natural materials were selected for the building cladding, including tumbled sandstone and cedar shingles, providing it with a welcoming external appearance. To ensure a slim external wall construction whilst also achieving the target U-value of 0.16 W/m2.K, Kingspan Kooltherm K8 Cavity Wall Board was specified within the cavity wall sections of the construction.

The unit, which holds an Energy Performance Certificate of A, also features a highly insulated floor and roof, with both elements achieving a U-value of 0.10 W/m2.K. To deliver this, almost 3000 m2 of Kingspan Kooltherm K3 Floorboard was fitted along with Kingspan Kooltherm K7 Pitched Roof Board and Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM.

Since the completion of the in-patient unit, Kingspan has launched its Kooltherm K100 range offering thermal conductivities of just 0.018 W/m.K across all thicknesses. The expanding range now includes K103 Floorboard, K107 Pitched Roof Board and K108 Cavity Board, helping buildings to achieve outstanding levels of thermal performance with a minimum construction thickness.
