External Wall Insulation Scheme, Hereford

SBS is currently delivering a 2-phase external wall insulation scheme for Herefordshire Housing. The first phase, which began in November 2018, entails installing external wall insulation to 59 Non-Traditional Cornish-style bungalows in Redhill. The properties are all occupied and are of a pre-fabricated pre-reinforced concrete (PRC) panel construction.

Phase 2 will also be carried out in the Redhill area and will feature similar works to 70 bungalows. The insulation work will take place alongside re-roofing works managed by the client itself.

The work was procured directly by Herefordshire Housing. The 2-phase scheme is valued at circa £250,000.

The system chosen for the project was designed and manufactured by PermaRock Products Ltd. It features fire-safe mineral fibre insulation, with a through-coloured Silicone Ultra K 1.5mm Finish and Brick Effect Render applied over it.

To help maximise the benefits of the scheme to the local community, SBS is delivering the scheme using local labour and SME suppliers.

SBS and PermaRock have worked together with Herefordshire Housing for over six years and have completed energy efficiency and associated works to hundreds of non-traditional properties.
