Located close to one of South Cumbria’s most picturesque market towns, Sedbergh, the Howgill Skies development has been designed and built to the latest standards. Developer Cumbrian Homes required high performance insulation to achieve target U-values of 0.26 W/mK in the cavity walls and 0.21 W/mK in the pitched roofs.
Appointed to review the project’s cavity wall requirements, Celotex Energy Assessments (CEA) and the Celotex Technical Centre worked closely to produce Standard Assessment Procedure (SAPs) calculations that would achieve space-saving requirements whilst simultaneously delivering improved U-values.
CEA was able to change the previously specified full-fill external wall insulation to Celotex CW4000 partial-fill solution – with 3,000m² supplied in a thickness of 50mm helping to deliver U-values of 0.21 W/mK. Using the thermal modelling results, CEA was also able to model the U-values for the pitched roof insulation to achieve the values previously specified, with fewer materials and reduced costs.
With its quick and efficient sustainability services, Celotex removed the hassle from the contractor whilst delivering the cost optimal insulation solution.
