Located at the northern end of Hull University’s Cottingham Road campus, it follows the £28m refurbishment of the Brynmor Jones Library which was completed in 2016, and the current redevelopment of the Middleton Hall theatre and conference space.
Mike Thomas, Branch Director at MKM in Hull said, “We recognised the importance of strength and performance offered by Sundolitt XPS and worked closely with their experts to ensure that product specifications and stock availability matched the requirements of this important project.”
Sundolitt XPS is a lightweight extruded polystyrene which offers exceptional eco-friendly attributes.
Bryan Mawer, Sundolitt’s Sales Manager for XPS said, “Our XPS is made without using environmentally harmful gases and is fully recyclable if recovered at end-of-life. And with the built-environment accounting for 40% of Europe’s energy consumption, the greater energy efficiency that comes from using Sundolitt XPS can, in some cases, reduce total energy consumption in buildings and structures by 75%.”
Sundolitt and MKM have worked closely add value and expertise in material selection and specification. The Sundolitt manufacturing processes allow for a fast response to the demanding needs of the sector and high levels of stocks are held in the UK.
