Award-Winning Council Office Refurbishment
PermaRock is delighted to be associated with the
award-winning refurbished Eastleigh Borough Council offices (Eastleigh House).
The refurbished office (brick and block gables with concrete
frame) has undergone a major transformation into what is now a modern looking
and sustainable building.
The scheme achieved a BREEAM Rating: 'Excellent at Design
Stage' and has picked up two
architecture awards, one for 'Best Refurbished/Recycled Workplace' at the British
Council for Offices (BCO) South West and Wales awards and one for 'Best
Commercial Building' at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
South East awards.
Project Architect, Stride Treglown, specified the PermaRock EPS-Premium
external wall insulation system with a SiliconeUltra
K 1.5 mm to the main elevations to achieve the high levels of thermal
performance required and the PermaRock Mineral
Fibre Lamella external wall insulation system with a SiliconeUltra
K 1.5 mm to curved areas due to its suitability for application onto curved
Working closely with building designers, PermaRock can
advise from design stage through to installation on how the external wall
insulation element of a project can help meet low carbon design requirements
and assist in contributing to or exceeding Passivhaus, BREEAM, Code for
Sustainable Homes (Levels 4-6) and similar performance standards.
Through the use of a PermaRock external wall insulation
system, heating demand can be dramatically reduced, conserving energy and
reducing CO2 emissions and very airtight façades can be created -
important factors in the design of energy efficient buildings.
