CELOTEX Finds The Best Pitch At Dorset Holiday Park

On Dorset’s spectacular Jurassic Coast, The Freshwater Holiday Park near Bridport is proving to be no dinosaur and is setting itself apart from other campsites with a brand new £3.5 million leisure complex. In a building which is subjected to the best and worst of British weather, the design had to incorporate insulation versatile enough to withstand the dramatically changing weather and climate conditions. High performance floor and wall insulation from leading PIR manufacturer Celotex met the challenge by helping to create a thermally efficient building envelope which was unaffected by temperature cycles.

Designed by HPW architects and built by Vear Construction, the 2000m² multi-use leisure facility forms a welcome addition to this popular holiday park. Close to the sandy delights of the Freshwater Beach, the first rate leisure building includes an indoor swimming pool with slides, a water play area, hot tub, steam room, gym, treatment room, six lanes of full size American ten pin bowling, roof terrace, and bar.

The steel framed building has been designed to combat the extremities of the coastal climate and also offer high levels of energy efficiency, keeping fuel bills low and minimising wasted carbon emissions. Sub contractor, Woodmace Civil Engineering installed 600m² of 100mm thick CW4000 within the cavity walls and 1500m² of 50mm thick Celotex GA4000 beneath the concrete floors.

Made from PIR (polyisocyanurate) with foil facers for improved emissivity, Celotex CW4000 achieves an excellent lambda of 0.022W/mK, helping the project meet the desired U-values.

Meeting strict levels of energy efficiency, the CW4000 boards have been independently assessed by BRE Global and confirmed as achieving a low environmental impact, through its BRE Approved Environmental Profile. The insulation has been awarded an A+ rating when compared to the BRE Green Guide 2008, making it the ideal choice for achieving the building’s environmental targets. Celotex CW4000 is also the first ever polyisocyanurate (PIR) product to receive approval from the Energy Saving Trust (EST) – the UK’s leading impartial organisation helping people to save energy and reduce carbon emissions

Celotex provided 100mm thick CW4000 for the cavity block walls of the steel framed building. These durable and extremely lightweight boards, available in a range of thicknesses from 25mm to 100mm and a standard board size of 1200mm x 450mm, are easy to cut to fit using hand tools making them ideal for a speedy application. In conveniently sized boards for installation between cavity wall ties, once clipped into place, the block walls were built and the exterior of the building was clad to create a weather tight envelope.

To insulate the floor and to avoid loss of heat, 50mm thick Celotex GA4000 was laid on the structural base then covered in poured concrete. Suitable for use in a number of applications including roof, wall and floor systems, Celotex GA4000 has also achieved an A+ rating when compared to the BRE Green Guide 2008, and is available in a board size of 1200mm x 2400mm and a range of thicknesses from 50mm to 100mm.

Now complete, Freshwater’s new leisure facility demonstrates the versatility of Celotex’ products – offering specifiers reliable and thermally superior products for the effective creation of a thermally efficient leisure facility, and contractors versatile and easy to use products for trouble free installation. The Celotex range represents the pinnacle of PIR insulation with other recognitions such as OFGEM approval.
