Underfloor insulation at Stromness Academy

Underfloor insulation at Stromness Academy

We’re pleased to have successfully completed spray foam insulation work at two schools in Orkney. Following our previous pilot project for Orkney Islands Council completed around three years ago, the underfloor areas of Papdale Primary School and Stromness Academy were sprayed with BASF ENERTITE open cell foam as part of the Council’s schools refurbishment programme. The contract was secured following  a formal tender process and ultimately we were selected for our experience and competitive rates.  Colin Davidson our Surveying and Estimating Manager believes our previous experience at these schools and ongoing working relationship with the Client held us in good stead. It was however necessary for us to be competitive and prove that our overall service and product range was superior to a number of other contractors. The award of this contract further enhances our reputation for working under critical conditions where the needs of the client and end user are paramount to achieving what is required.’

Eco Insulate worked with the Main Contractor but application of the foam insulation was started ahead of the main contract to take advantage of local school holidays. However the scope of the treatment meant that much of the work was carried out during normal school hours when staff and pupils were present which required careful planning and close liaison with all parties.

BASF Enertite open cell foam was applied to depths up to 100mm to provide underfloor insulation with the additional benefit of preventing heat loss through air leakage. Enertite is ideal for use in these situations as it is water blown, contains no VOC’s and is formaldehyde free.
