Angus target EESSH

ecoadmin, May 3, 2016

As part of their policy to continually invest in their housing stock Angus Housing Association have recently embarked on a capital works programme to improve the thermal performance of their properties. This will help them achieve the requirements of EESSH by improving the energy efficiency of their many flatted properties which fall into the Hard to Treat category.
The decision to proceed was based on 4 pilot projects carried out over the last two years by eco Insulate Ltd with the performance of the properties being monitored by Robert Gordon University. The encouraging results led to the Association appointing Hamish Bell Associates to issue tender documents to a number of specialist contractors. We were subsequently awarded the contract to treat 37 houses based on a combination of our competitive rates, quality and service performance criteria.
The properties, which are traditionally built will be treated using BASF Elastopor open cell foam, injected into the void between the internal plaster finish and solid masonry walls. This will ensure that the overall external appearance of the buildings is maintained. There will be no need to decant tenants while the work proceeds, saving the Association time and costs for temporary accommodation. It’s expected that the insulation work to each flat will take around one day, minimising any inconvenience to tenants.
