We won the Outstanding Contractor Award for EWI and Render products for our install at Shennington Airfield.

The first jet aircraft, the Gloster E28/39, was tested in secrecy during World War II at RAF Edgehill, now Shenington Airfield, in 1942.

Weatherseal Facades were consulted to advise on best options for insulated and render only finishes to the various buildings and refurbishment of this unique building. Having provided various pricing options Weatherseal were instructed to install the insulated render and render only systems to the fa├žade of the building.

To overcome discrepancies in the substrate and ensure features were provided a variety of EPS insulation thicknesses were utilised. Site install was a challenge due to the isolated and exposed location with works being restricted to suit opportunities to install in favourable conditions. The existing poor condition building was remodelled to provide an efficient and modern dwelling with existing and new build blending to provide a large and striking aesthetic.

The quality and detailing of this project was recognised by the judges with Weatherseal being awarded the prestigious honour of best project for 2019.
