Armour Close & Boleyn Road
Contract Type: Residential New Build
Homes for Islington embarked upon one of the largest new build schemes by a Local Authority for many years with its scheme to deliver low carbon-emitting, energy efficient living space.
Lawtech was appointed by Mansell to install External Wall Insulation (EWI) to new build properties at Armour Close and Boleyn Road.
Following the successful completion of the Tollington Estate project for the same client a few months previously, Lawtech again selected the Alsecco EWI system. In order to achieve very high thermal performance, insulation was applied at a thickness of 190-240mm, with a white silicone render finish. High-impact mesh was installed to all ground floor areas.
Lawtech accommodated a warranty-related request from the window manufacturer that the render be installed before the glazing. Our design team adapted our methodology accordingly, for agreement by all parties.
The completed developments have a crisp, contemporary feel and were shortlisted for the Housing Design Awards, Sustainable Housing Awards and RICS Sustainability Award.
