External Wall Insulation to properties for Tai Calon Community Housing
What We Did:
We were appointed as specialist contractor to apply external wall insulation (EWI) to a large number of properties (500) in Blaenau Gwent, South East Wales.
The local area was in need of a revamp and Joyners were appointed to deliver the works. The benefits derived from the delivery of the works included giving residents homes a much needed facelift, improved thermal efficiency and delivering a renewed a sense of pride in the homes in which they live.
The external render system was inclusive of 110mm insulation with a mesh coat, base coat, primer and a sand coloured top coat. Not only will this provide the properties with excellent thermal performance but will enhance the external facade and give it a fresh modern look that residents can be proud of.
The area has been lifted and the properties now give the tenants a real sense of pride in where they live. Not only this but home owners’ energy bills will be reduced significantly, as well as providing warmer homes in the winter months.
U-Value has been reduced from 2.44w/m2K to 0.35 w/m2K
As a company we always ensure, wherever possible, we source labour from the local area. Throughout the first phase we employed 22 operatives from in and around the local area. Our goal is to maintain, and increase the levels of staff through future growth and ensure sustainable employment.
