Neptune House, Islington
Contract Type: Residential Refurbishment
Client: Islington Borough Council
London Borough of Islington’s refurbishment of the 4-storey Neptune House was one of the first ECO CESP projects to be completed.
Planning permission for works to London brick stock has been notoriously difficult to obtain. The striking design created collaboratively between the client, Lawtech and our External Wall Insulation supplier, Alsecco, matched the modern buildings that surround Neptune House.
The block of 36 flats was scaffolded and managed by Framework Contractor Breyer. Lawtech removed the existing Juliet balconies and completed remedial works prior to the installation of the Alsecco EPS system with contrasting white and grey silicone render finishes. The balconies, which had been resprayed in black were then replaced.
The scheme met the increased compliance requirements for ECO works as demanded by Ofgem.
The bold approach of the Neptune House project attracted a lot of attention and set an example for other London boroughs, showing what can be achieved under ECO.
