Another chance for our products to shine came
when Glebefields Health Centre in Tipton required
external wall insulation as part of their £6.5 million
Our highly recommended Basic 1 system was the ideal solution for
Glebefields Health Centre in Tipton. This £6.5 million new development
required expanded polystyrene insulation, as specified by HLM Architects.
This choice of insulation was used in increased thicknesses in certain areas
to create features that stood out from the panels on the building.
Basic 1 is the primary system in this range using expanded polystyrene as
the insulation core. It is high performance and excellent for detailing. It is
also water-repellent, cost-effective and has excellent weathering capacities.
The fully acrylic or mineral-based thin coat render system provides an easyto-apply
solution for effectively insulating the building. A wide variety of
finishes, textures and colours can then be applied.
Our Basic 1 System
was chosen based
on its excellent
from being costeffective
The 33,000 sq ft project was a joint initiative between
Sandwell Primary Care Trust and developers, Sandwell Local
Improvement Finance Trust Company, which built and now
maintains the centre for the PCT under a long-term publicprivate
partnership agreement. It incorporates a number of
clinics, from foot-health to family planning, as well as dental
services, a Citizen’s Advice Bureau, a pharmacy and
an optician. It serves around 35,000 patients each year
over two storeys.
