Energy saving at Studley Castle

With the help Kingspan Industrial Isulation, Studley Castle Hotel has been redeveloped to offer guests the glamour of Gothic architecture with the benefits of modern energy efficiency.

Studley Castle Hotel in Warwickshire.

The Warwickshire-based hotel is steeped in a fascinating history and British hotel owners, Warner Leisure Hotels, has expanded and restructured elements of the site to enhance its architectural appeal. A key stipulation for the £50 million renovation was to reduce its carbon footprint.

Chase Insulation selected Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation to insulate the pipework to help reduce primary energy use and carbon emissions.

Studley Castle’s refurbishment and extension has been designed to exceed the current energy performance requirements for Building Regulations compliance. With an aged thermal conductivity as low as 0.025 W/m·K, Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation could help meet this target.

As a result, 15,318 lm was specified in thicknesses ranging from 15 mm – 25 mm throughout the site for all heating and domestic water services to work towards future proofing the hotel. The pipework supplies 200 guest rooms in the original castle and across a contemporary three-storey wing.

Samuel Hitch, managing director of Chase Insulation, added: “We recommended Kingspan for the Studley Castle Hotel as our client wanted to ensure a thermally efficient build to minimise costs and maximise benefits. Given our experience working with its products, we were confident we could deliver this. In addition, we could also accomplish excellent indoor air quality as there are no fibres emitted from the insulation.”

Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation has been awarded a best-in-class Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate, recognising it as an outstanding material according to the VOC Indoor Air Quality emissions standards. It has been assigned a BRE Green Guide rating of A/A+, has a fibre free core which has been manufactured with blowing agents with zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and has a low Global Warming Potential (GWP).

The product is manufactured under a BS EN ISO 14001: 2004 scheme and is the first pipe insulation product to attain BDA Agrement certification under the scheme.
