Western Thermal insulates and NHS unit


Western Thermal Limited, a leading specialist in heating and ventilation insulation, ductwork, electric heating, fire stopping, and thermal energy auditing, is offering its services to the Wexham Park Hospital Emergency Department.

The NHS unit will benefit from thermal insulation, trace heating, and fire stopping on the building’s pipework and ductwork, including fitted fire rated insulation sleeves. The Executive Operations Director of Western Thermal, Michael Slater, said: “We are proud to be a part of such an important NHS project for the country. Wexham Park Hospital also adds to our project count in the Slough Area, which include LDC data centres and Slough Power.”

Western Thermal’s Thermal division is one of the leaders in providing heating and ventilation insulation contractors. It is known by its clients for its services meeting the demands for economic and environmental efficiency and also for its groundbreaking insulation jackets that use removable and reusable thermal materials.

While the Trace Heating division specialises in supplying the building’s pipes with water at a constant temperature that also protects the pipes from frost, the trace heating systems offer self-limiting, flexible resistant, and metal-sheathed resistant heating cables.

The £49 million hospital project will benefit of all these advantages that Western Thermal has up its sleeve. Wexham Park Hospital has a total of 36 individual rooms and a separate children and minor injuries unit.

The main contractor for the project is Kier Construction Ltd, a leading property, residential, construction, and services group.

The company has previously contributed to other major projects, including Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, Wembley Stadium, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Recently, it had installed thermal insulation at Victoria Station, helped with the redevelopment of Bond Street Underground Station, and together with the University of Leeds it contributed to the Worsley building and the Edward Boyle Library projects.
