Alder Hey

Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is set to provide long-term energy savings for an amazing new children’s hospital, built entirely within a park.

The Project

Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation will provide long-term energy savings for an amazing new children’s hospital, built entirely within a park.

Alder Hey in the Park offers a completely new vision for healthcare provision. Its gently undulating, three-fingered design was developed by BDP and Laing O’Rourke with regular input from a group of current and former patients. The resulting 270-bed facility offers a much warmer environment for patients and their families, with large outdoor spaces on every floor and easy access to play areas. The purpose-built park hospital also boasts a top class critical care unit and 16 digitally enhanced theatres.

We wanted the hospital to achieve a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. The Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation product has a BRE Green Guide A+ rating, as well as being manufactured under a BS EN ISO 14001: 2004 scheme. This assured us that it would meet our expectations.

With the project also aiming to become “the most sustainable hospital in the UK”, limiting energy loss from building services was obviously a key consideration. As a result, Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation was specified for pipework across the facility.
