Temple Point, Bristol, enters its final phase of thermal insulation work for Western Thermal

Temple Point, one of Bristol’s flagship office buildings, is nearing completion of its thermal insulation work by Western Thermal. The £6 million redevelopment of the five-storey office building is currently undergoing a thermal insulation refurbishment to its internal office space, reception, and meeting area. Phillip Jones, Executive Operations Director at Western Thermal, said: “There is a lot of development going on throughout the country and our Regional office network is meeting this demand with plenty of exciting projects and a good pipeline. We are proud to have been a part of such an important centerpiece for Bristol.”

The main contractor for the project is Midas Construction, on behalf of Legal and General, with Western Thermal’s client being Briggs & Forrester. The Company was awarded the contract in September 2017. Western Thermal is also a leading specialist engineer in acoustic insulation, ventilation ductwork, trace heating, fire stopping, and pipework, with a combined total of over thirty years’ experience.

Western Thermal’s Thermal division is one of the country’s leading heating and ventilation insulation contractors. Its services meet the ever-increasing demands for both economic and environmental efficiency while meeting client specification and manufacturers’ recommendations, for both internal and external applications. The Company has also pioneered specialist insulation jackets using the latest thermal materials, which are both removable and reusable. These include valve and flange jackets, bespoke Plate heat exchanger jackets, which are used in international weather stations, and bespoke trace heated jackets, which are predominantly used within the food processing industry.

The division has contributed to numerous landmark projects including Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, Wembley Stadium, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. More recently, it has installed thermal insulation at Victoria Station, completed major works at the Battersea Power Station residential, retail and leisure development, and worked on the redevelopment of Bond Street Underground Station, along with a number of University of Leeds projects including the Worsley building and the Edward Boyle Library.
