XENERGY™ SL and MK™ is specified for Midland Metropolitan Hospital
Dow Building Solutions’ XPS products are being used in the construction of the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Sandwell. The new facility is expected to have 670 beds and 15 operating theatres, transforming healthcare provision in the local area. Half a million people will benefit from the new A&E, maternity, children’s and inpatient adult services that will be available from the state of the art hospital.
9000sqm of 160mm and 180mm XENERGY™ SL and XENERGY™ MK is being supplied to the main roofing contractor Praters. Dow has been assisting with the design process through the provision of u-value calculations and other technical assistance, drawing on the expertise of its experienced staff.
Richard Powell, Sales Manager, Dow Building and Construction, said: “We are proud to be working on this key new piece of healthcare infrastructure in the West Midlands. Midland Metropolitan Hospital is set to provide world class healthcare from a beautifully designed building, where architects have stretched scaled new heights. XENERGY™ is still capable of providing exceptional thermal performance at lesser thicknesses, allowing architects greater creative flexibility.”
