Aerial Video Shows High-Rise Results

Last year (2018), SBS completed external wall insulation works to six high-rise residential blocks at Scholes Village in Wigan. The properties were all occupied and included five 12-storey blocks, and a more complex 10-storey block.

In May 2019, we commissioned an aerial survey of the finished results. As the accompanying photographs show, the finish still looks pristine and the system as a whole is performing flawlessly.
