Westdale Services, Hall Construction and Alumasc Facade Systems were pleased to welcome a number of staff from East Riding of Yorkshire Council to their Goole site last week which is currently being upgraded with the installation of external wall insulation (EWI).
Tyrone Lawton, Alumasc Area Manager for the region delivered a short presentation explaining the products and processes involved when insulating hard to treat housing stock. This was then followed by a demonstration of the application of the EWI system by Westdale. The highlight of the day however was for willing members of the council to ‘have a go’ at applying the system themselves which turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Following refreshments and the interactive workshop, attendees had a walk around the site to look at recently completed properties.
Westdale’s contract at Goole, which is utilising Alumasc Facade Systems products, consists of 102 properties which will be externally insulated with 120mm phenolic insulation boards, achieving a ‘U’ value of 0.15W/m2K.
The external finishes specified will be used to replicate the existing facades in the area, meaning the scheme is a true mix of brick effect render, textured silicone render and stone headers and cills.
