In February 2019, we reported that we'd begun work on the first phase of a new external wall insulation scheme in Middlesbrough, thanks to a successful tender for the social housing provider, Beyond Housing.
That first phase, which entailed insulating 92 occupied homes, is now complete. The second phase has now begun. It will involve similar works to 98 properties in nearby Overfield. The properties are of No Fines concrete construction and have solid walls. The contract is expected to be finished in the autumn and, together, the two phases are worth approximately £1.1 million.
The external wall system specified for the scheme features PermaRock EPS-Premium External Wall Insulation with a selection of finishes, including brick slips and PermaRock Silicone Ultra K & R Finishes.
Work is progressing on schedule and SBS site staff recently celebrated the completion of the 100th property under the scheme.
