We used ‘brick-slip’ external wall insulation from Weber to improve the energy efficiency and aesthetic of the buildings. We also improved the pathways around the site and replaced external stairways and fire exits. Due to the external cladding, we had to extend boiler flues, which meant arranging access to every flat to carry out the work.
Residents chose the outside colour scheme after a large-scale consultation, which allowed people to get involved with the process. The new external wall insulation is in line with current standards for safety. It will help tenants feel warmer, save them money on fuel bills and cure the historical issues with penetrating damp.
