Rateavon worked with SSE to install external wall insulation to over 450 homes (across 3 phases) in Harlow, Essex. The properties are owned by Harlow Council and were of non-traditional construction. Alescco’s Basic 5 EWI System with 90mm EPS was specified. This system reduced the walls U-values to 0.29W/(m2k) from approximately 1.90W/(m2k). A spar dash or smooth render finish and colour was chosen to match the houses original finish. A total carbon saving of 12,523.917tco2 was achieved based on ECO calculations across this project.
The work Rateavon have been carrying out “is outstanding and tenants have provided very good feedback on how it has reduced their heating bills. The results are really encouraging and I hope to see more work carried out.” Robert Halfon – MP for Harlow.
