The Warwickshire-based hotel is steeped in a fascinating history which spans life as a family home, women-only college, and offices. British hotel owners, Warner Leisure Hotels, has expanded and restructured elements of the site to enhance its architectural appeal, and deliver luxurious spaces for guests to escape to. A key stipulation for the £50 million renovation was to drastically reduce its carbon footprint. To ensure that the services were as effective as possible, Chase Insulation selected Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation to insulate the pipework to help reduce primary energy use and carbon emissions.
Studley Castle’s refurbishment and extension has been designed to exceed the current energy performance requirements for Building Regulations compliance. With an aged thermal conductivity as low as 0.025 W/m·K (at 10°C mean), Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation could help meet this target. As a result, 15,318 lm was specified in thicknesses ranging from 15 mm – 25 mm throughout the site for all heating and domestic water services to work towards future proofing the hotel. The pipework supplies 200 guest rooms in the original castle and across a contemporary three-storey wing, restaurant, lounges, and a health suite within a converted stable block which includes a pool and spa.
