Project: East Ayrshire Render Coated External Wall Insulation
Client: Scottish Southern Energy
Project Reference Number C14 – 005
Award Date: October 2014
Completion Date: Currently in Progress
Relevance: EWI Experience in a Registered Social Landlord environment
The project brief comprises of the installation of an insulated external render system to 248 No, 2 storey timber clad ‘Weir’ type houses spread over 4 distinct locations in East Ayrshire.
The address list comprises of a mixture of both tenanted and privately owned properties. The contract involves the replacement of existing gutters, downpipes and soil vent pipes, the replacement of external lighting, installation of new PVC fascia boards, installation of an insulated render system and all associated enabling works.
The main challenge on this project is one of a logistical nature – ensuring that the required materials are available for installation at the individual properties as and when required, whilst maintaining a safe and tidy environment for members of the general public. All properties are occupied for the duration of the works and storage space is limited by the very nature of the location.
It is a requirement of the contract that the works are to be carried-out in accordance with PAS 2030 and, as a consequence, Skyform, will ensure that subcontractors will undertake additional training (where needed) to achieve PAS 2030 accreditation. The works on-site will be also subject to weekly inspection, by the render manufacturer, to ensure compliance with the terms of Skyform’s approved installation license for the insulated render system.
