Bristol-based architects Marshall & Kendon have sought technical advice from manufacturer Marmox, regarding the integration of its Thermoblocks into the exterior insulation ‘wrap’ of a bespoke, near-to- zero timber frame construction. A total of 170 of the 100 mm wide version for the versatile 600 mm long Thermoblocks were specified, with installers utilising an approved adhesive to not only seal the overlap joints, but also to bed the blocks across the OSB base which is covered by a ‘paintable’ membrane. The various lines of Thermoblocks then support the stick-built timber frame exterior and internal walls, with the main isocyanate floor insulation panels infilling the rest of the ground floor area. Thermoblocks feature a unique design where two rows of high strength epoxy concrete mini-columns are encapsulated in sections of XPS.
