Celcon Plus blocks specified for low U-value

Celcon Plus Blocks from H+H

Celcon Plus Blocks using Thin Join Celfix Mortar from H+H were specified on both the separating and internal walls for Ty Llidiard, Litchard House, the new child and adolescent mental health unit at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.
The exact specification of the blocks used was Celcon Standard and High Strength Plus Blocks in 100, 140 and 215 mm thicknesses, which were specified to help achieve a low U-value. The Thin Joint construction method meant a frame wasn’t required apart from sections that had large spans.
BAM Construction began the construction work on the 3,400 m2  health unit in January 2010. Mike Sealey, design manager at BAM said: “We needed to build to low U-values for walls and H+H aircrete blocks helped us to achieve this. The dimensional accuracy of the Thin Joint system increased the speed of the entire process. Celcon Plus Blocks are also particularly robust, which is essential for a project like this as the facility will experience wear and tear and is designed to last for a long period of time.”
