Knauf Insulation has provided insulation materials to their local and nominated charity Willowbrook Hospice, in order to help refurbish one of their buildings. As well as sending a team of volunteers to help in the hospice gardens, they donated 600m2 of 45mm and 70mm of Earthwool® rock mineral wool slabs to insulate above the new suspended ceiling tile system in their newly acquired building.
Alexandra House in St. Helens had been empty and unused for six years, when Willowbrook acquired the building with the help of a Government grant. The aim of the building is to provide facilities to support carers so that patients with life limiting illnesses can live well in the place of their choosing for as long as possible.
Neil Wright, Chief Executive of Willowbrook Hospice said: “We are extremely grateful to Knauf Insulation for their very generous contribution of materials and help in the refurbishment of Alexandra House.
“Their generosity in providing much-needed insulation has resulted in cost savings in the overall work needed at Alexandra House. Ultimately, this means more money can be spent caring for patients.”
Knauf Insulation also provided technical advice and guidance to the architect responsible for the refurbishment. The insulation can be used in many different applications and offers a wide range of benefits including exceptional fire performance characteristics, as well as excellent thermal and acoustic properties. Plus, the product can be used in a wide range of applications.
