Funded by the Technology Strategy Board and implemented in collaboration with Southern Housing, the aim of this social housing retrofit by bere:architects, is to show that deepenergy cuts are possible with social housing stock.
Vacutherm provided the following solutions
“Vacutherm provided us with the expertise of integrating Vacupor® Insulation. The vast range Vacutherm offer enabled us to treat the floor with an effective and highly insulating solution”.
The advantage of using Vacupor® NT was that the floor could be insulated effectively without having to carry out any remedial works on the floor itself. Vacutherm are proud to have contributed to bere:architects designs for the property at Passfield Drive, especially as the project has recently been nominated in the Sustainable Housing Awards. In addition Passifield Drive was a winner in the 2012 – Green Building Awards; a leading construction industry award which aims to recognise projects that demonstrate outstanding energy efficiency results.
This approach to improving and insulating the UK’s housing stock is increasingly essential in particular to protect our growing elderly population, as well as to protect the planet from the adverse effects of high CO2 emissions from the developed world.
