Alumasc help to transform homes in Doncaster
Contractors working on a major housing refurbishment programme in Doncaster have used External Wall Insulation and Render systems from facades specialists Alumasc.
St Leger Homes is working in partnership with Doncaster Council to transform the standard of the borough’s properties with one of the biggest housing investments in Doncaster’s history.
Alumasc provided detailed proposals including impressive, computer generated 3D visualisations of how the completed scheme would look, ensuring ultimate peace of mind to all parties involved in the design process.
Working closely with their approved installer SLK Contractors of Castleford, Alumasc supplied 12,000 square metres of Swisslab, the market leading insulated render system for the refurbishment of existing properties. Swisslab is extensively used to upgrade social housing in order to meet the Decent Homes Standard and strongly contributes to urban regeneration. With thermal performance a key consideration in any modern construction project, a 50mm phenolic high density insulation panel was applied to achieve a u-value of 0.35W/m2, creating a comfortable environment for residents whilst lowering energy costs and significantly reducing maintenance.
To provide welcome relief from the monotonous colour tones previously used on the estate, the properties were finished with a combination of ST Silkolitt Silicone, M.R. Polymer Dashing Render and Rendabrick feature bands.
Contractors on the project were Henry Boot Construction; Wates Living Space and Bramall Construction, part of the Keepmoat Group.
