Loughborough University have been carrying out monitoring and tests on a pair of identical semi-detached houses in Mountsorrel (Mountsorrel is a village in Leicestershire on the River Soar, just south of Loughborough with a population in 2001 of 6,662 inhabitants, increasing to 8,223 at the 2011 census.)
The properties are constantly checked and readings taken to assess their performance.
In order to improve their thermal performance an agreement was made with 2 suppliers (Kingspan and Permarock) to use their products for a BBA (British Board of Agrément) approved EWI (external wall insulation) install.
Weatherseal Facades carried out the installation including enabling works giving properties an overhaul and for the University to monitor how the systems benefits the properties.
From a shed with just a roof in a field to a beautiful home with landscaped garden! The Architects vision was to create a home that would be overlooking the wonderful Warwickshire countryside.
Weatherseal Facades carried out SFS framing, sheathing and Insulated Render to transform this Dutch barn. There were complications during the conversion mainly down to the floor slab but once the SFS design was confirmed the walls were installed quite quickly which then gave a platform for the sheathing board and the insulated render to complete the aesthetics of the building.
Client “The Team turned up when requested and were efficient and co-operative on site. The standard of workmanship was excellent and the finished product looks crisp and compliments good design”
The customer has a system built property that was cold and needed updating.
Weatherseal Facades were contacted and provided a BBA (British Board of Agreement) approved installation under the UK government Green Deal which improved the thermal performance and appearance of the house.
