Knauf Insulations ThermoShell® External Wall Insulation (EWI) rock system has helped to transform four residential blocks at Peregrine Road in Spelthorne, Surrey as part of a £1.7m scheme undertaken by housing association, A2 Dominion.
The EWI system has improved not only the energy efficiency of the 34 homes, it has also saved money on the residents energy bills and enhanced the appearance of the area.
Knauf Insulations ThermoShell EWI system using rock mineral wool insulation, was installed to the four residential blocks and rendered using a combination of colours: blue and white which were chosen by the residents from an engagement programme organised by A2 Dominion at the beginning of the project.
Laura Donovan, project manager at A2 Dominion commented: Over the past few years we have decided to embrace the challenge of improving the energy efficiency of our housing stock and so we chose to tackle our properties in Spelthorne.
Although we were ineligible for ECO funding having already received support under the CERT scheme, we still chose to install EWI to the residential blocks as it offered a range of attractive solutions, including the energy performance of the system and the ability to upgrade the aesthetics of a property.
