Resort World

EcoTherm’s Class 0 rated PrO-Soffit insulation has been installed at the multi-million pound Resorts World integrated leisure complex in Birmingham.

The Project

The construction of the 84,000m2 development from Genting Group has been overseen by Galliford Try, and is the first of its kind in the UK.  Benoy’s design for the twelve storey centre takes inspiration from its lakeside setting and includes bars, shops, an Imax cinema and a luxury hotel with spa.

EcoTherm contribution

With the complex capable of holding up to 12,000 people at any one time, it was essential that all materials installed on the complex achieved excellent fire performance. This contributed to the specification of 6000 m2 of EcoTherm PrO-Soffit for the lower ground level carpark. 

EcoTherm PrO-Soffit rigid insulation boards have a pure aluminium facing and are suitable for use on new or existing semi-exposed soffits in carparks, office blocks and basements. The product was installed by Fire Integrity and offers enhanced fire performance with a Class O rating as defined by the Building Regulations, whilst its thermal conductivity of 0.021 W/mK allows it to provide a cost effective route to reducing CO2 emissions. 

The building envelope was completed with the tapered Building Innovation Aspire Solution which achieved the required U-value performance whilst matching the falls of the adjacent pitched roof sections.

The EcoTherm PrO-Soffit boards were one of a number of passive fire solutions that we installed at Resorts World. The boards were simple to install and easily met the fire and thermal performance requirements of the project.

Please note: PrO-Soffit & PrO-Soffit Plus are no longer be available. For class O fire performance insulation in a soffit liner application, EcoTherm can now offer Eco-Protect & Eco-Protect Plus.
