StructureCare, with a 30-year pedigree in transforming car park facilities, waterproofing elevated service decks, flat roofs and podium slabs, and installing specialist protective coatings, has a new home in Sandbach, Cheshire, which showcases the company’s ethos of using modern, high quality materials and demonstrating clever, green credentials.
The golden thread of StructureCare centres around single point responsibility solutions, with every facility for customers under one roof. It, therefore, made sense to create the very best all-encompassing headquarters.
The new building, which features a stunning, steel-framed showroom designed to welcome customers old and new, incorporates the central administrative, storage, service and distribution functions of the organisation;
Regional offices remain at Crayford, Leicester and Sheffield to ensure optimal national coverage.
Customers, contractors and specifiers have access to an unrivalled blend of experience and technical expertise through one phone number, 01942 251 400, which will lead automatically to the right team for a fast-track response.
Ryan Williams, Business Development Manager, commented
“The mixture of extension and refurbishment, along with the modern, energy efficient and sustainable design made the project, and resultant building, really interesting. It has been designed to be as environmentally sustainable as possible in order to showcase our green credentials and, as a result of new initiatives, we have reduced the energy consumption of our offices by an incredible 93%. The new building has no boilers or air conditioning units. Instead, heating and hot water is provided through air source heat pumps, which extract heat from the air even on the coldest day, and underfloor heating, which distributes this heat around the building. Air is cooled by reversing the underfloor pipes to absorb heat from the building. The ‘green’ sedum roof is made up of a living carpet of plants which absorbs carbon dioxide, adds thermal insulation and provides an environment for birds, insects and other wildlife. Reflective flooring reduces the need for lighting whilst daylight sensitive lighting minimises energy use. Insulated external renders and the thermally-efficient glazed wall further insulates the building. Natural ventilation is created using solar powered monodraught windcatchers which channel a controlled quantity of fresh air into a room from roof level, whatever the wind’s direction, and without mechanical assistance. In addition, all the excavated material was recycled and we were also able to re-use existing slate roof tiles and Velux windows.”
“Our impressive new facility offers all the space and functionality that we need to grow and thrive; modern, environmentally-sustainable, and a space that allows all StructureCare’s departments to work seamlessly together. This is a new and exciting chapter for StructureCare, enabling us to go from strength-to-strength, continuing to lead the way in the repair, protection and weatherproofing of buildings and structures.”
