A&M was awarded the insulation package to insulate 11 new Code level 6 family homes; the first in Southampton.
Whilst featuring renewable technologies including solar PV and Bio-mass, the energy strategy for these ‘true carbon zero’ homes relied heavily on the effective application of many passive construction techniques; all of the homes benefit from a highly efficient building fabric, extremely low levels of air permeability, and thermally modelled junctions to avoid cold bridging.
11 plots were completed within 2011 insulating external walls, party walls, internal walls and the flat roof.
Knauf Frametherm was used for all the walls.
