Hersant Close, Brent
Contract Type: Residential Refurbishment
Client: Wates on behalf of Network Stadium Housing
Scope of Works:
Network Stadium Housing (NSH) set out to enhance the thermal performance and aesthetics of 52 properties in Hersant Close, Wembley, comprising 40 houses and 2 three-storey blocks each containing 6 dwellings.
Lawtech worked with our External Wall Insulation supplier, Weber, to identify a solution for presentation to NSH and the Framework Contractor, Wates. Budget was a key consideration for the client, but they also wished to move away from a standard cream silicone finish to create more striking façades. The client accepted our proposal for Weber Grey EPS insulation, primarily finished with cream silicone render, with brick-effect feature bands. Brick-effect detailing was also used around the windows.
Hersant Close exemplifies Lawtech’s approach to working collaboratively with suppliers and Local Authorities to overcome the planning issues that arise in relation to the refurbishment of brick bond buildings.
