Desborough Cres, Maidenhead
Contract Type: Residential Refurbishment
Client: Housing Solutions
Lawtech managed a late CERT-funded scheme to benefit the residents of Housing Solutions’ most rural properties.
The 16 semi-detached houses at Desborough Crescent were originally constructed with No Fines Concrete. They were thermally inefficient, resulting in high energy bills for residents.
Lawtech installed 100mm Rockwool Mineral Wall External Wall Insulation finished with an off-white silicone render topcoat. Working with the system provider we developed bespoke detailing for the existing architectural fin at the front of each property in order to alleviate cold bridging issues and retain the original contours of the buildings. The installation achieved a U-Value of 0.3W/(m2K) and refreshed the appearance of the homes.
Residents of the small community live in close proximity to each other. Lawtech provided a site-based Resident Liaison Officer at Desborough Crescent to manage access to the properties, keeping all stakeholders informed and updated.
