Premium performance rigid phenolic insulation manufactured by market leaders Kingspan Insulation was chosen for the refurbishment of the Lancastrian Office Building in Old Trafford, Manchester.
The five storey building owned and managed by Bruntwood has been refurbished throughout to offer flexible open plan office suites with 24 hour access and onsite car parking.
As a family business founded in 1976, Bruntwood are committed to ensuring that their customers should never have to worry about their office space and therefore only high specification products are used throughout the refurbishment of any of their properties.
Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board* was installed on the ceiling of the external car park canopies to thermally insulate between the car parking and the first floor by Total Firestopping, Cheshire.
Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board was chosen for the external application as it was able to meet the high thermal standards required for the project and insulating a floor from underneath can be much quicker than insulating it from above.
