Firstly, your floor will be assessed and the type identified. For this to be performed properly we must have full access to the floor, any furniture that’s in the way should be removed prior to the arrival of our hard floor cleaners in Bromley. Next, the floor will be vacuumed and any dust or hair will be extracted. In order for the correct cleaning solution to be determined a small area of your floor will be used for testing purposes, this won’t leave any marks. If the surface is not made of wood a cleaning solution will be applied, if it is wood drive pads will be utilised instead. After this your entire floor will be rinsed and then dried. If it’s necessary a protection layer consisting of seal, polish or wax will be put down. The drying time ranges from 30 minutes to two hours.

External Wall Insulation (EWI)

There are approximately 9 million dwellings of solid wall structure in the UK. External Wall Insulation provides a viable option to improve the thermal performance of these properties.

The most common building types of this nature receiving EWI are solid masonry, concrete or brick builds. In addition old style prefabrications and framework buildings with metal or timber panel infill. Traditionally these properties have been deemed hard to treat in terms of insulating. However EWI as a modern approach to facades sees insulation applied to the outside of the building structure.

Heat easily penetrates through solid wall properties. Insulated Render has revolutionised the way buildings old and new, residential or commercial can be built or refurbished. U –values can easily be achieved that meet current and proposed Part L building regulations, vastly improving the thermal characteristics of the living or working environment.

A External wall insulation system is built up through a series of components. The first layer and most important is the insulation itself. There are many types available on the market from Mineral Wool, Expandable Polystyrene, Phenolic, PIR and Cork. Each system has its strengths and more can be learnt on each type on our Insulation type page. Lawtech have installed over 1,000,000 m2 of EWI to date and we are approved by all major system providers, Rockwool, Weber, Wetherby, Sto, Dryvit, Alescco and Alumasc.

The insulation is then topped with bas coat renders, reinforcement mesh and a choice of decorative finishes. Advanced technology means smooth, rough, dash, brick effect and brick slip finishes are available. All of these systems can be built up on site and finished by hand to the texture and colour selected. Insulated Render systems are extremely versatile and can be applied to nearly all substrate types. Finishes can be extremely vibrant in appearance or can be light pastel shades or white. With a choice of over 2,000 colours and a range of specialist finishes, the choice is yours.

Alternatively insulation can be finished with an overloading rail system. Whether rain screen, aluminium, terracotta or timber, cladding options can provide a crisp and modern finish.

External Wall Insulation carries many benefits. It brings the tenants within dwellings in to a better comfort of living and affordable warmth with reduced energy bills. It also reduces the chances of condensation with the dew point moving to the outside of the building.

Design

Lawtech Ltd has the capacity to design external wall insulation, render systems, lightweight steel frame and other cladding systems.

Our team works closely with our clients ensuring that the design meets the brief as well as complying with current building regulations, especially in respect of fire and thermal performance.

Our design team works closely with consultant engineers and system manufacturers to ensure that the structure is capable of taking the façade weight and wind load, and is designed so that the system manufacturer’s warranties will not be compromised.

Our design team consists of a technical team and CAD technicians to provide a fast and efficient service to our clients. We are one of only a few solid wall insulation contractors that carry its own professional indemnity insurance (£5 million).

Lawtech is one of the largest installers of external wall insulation systems across the UK with offices in Rochester and Glasgow. Lawtech is UKAS accredited to ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 and is an active member of the NIA.

Lawtech is able to act as a Principal Contractor on multi million pound “green” retrofit schemes installing and managing multiple energy saving measures, and in addition as a specialist façade contractor working with other contractor partners. We are able to offer advice and assistance in respect to grants and funds schemes available under CERT, CESP and from 2013 Green Deal.

Making BISF homes energy efficient

Case Study

Providing energy saving measures to non standard properties

The Challenge
Stoke City Council had only recently decided to retain their non-standard BISF-type properties for improvement, rather than to demolish them. Kier was invited to devise a solution to provide energy saving measures and to increase the lifespan of the properties at little or no cost to the client.

Our Solution
Having assessed the client’s asset address list to verify whether they qualified for the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP), we found that 209 of the Council’s BISF properties met the prescribed criteria. We developed a scheme to provide external wall insulation to all the properties along with additional measures such as loft insulation and boiler replacements to maximise the possible funding. The scheme was priced and a fully priced cost model developed.

To obtain funding bids from the energy companies, the property details and work measures were scheduled and forwarded to four of the “Big 6” energy suppliers so that they could estimate the resulting carbon savings and provide us with their best funding offers. Upon receipt of the initial bids, further negotiation increased the funding to over £1.9m covering all but £60K of the project total.

Following the client’s approval to proceed, planning permission was sought and granted. Detailed surveys helped us identify additional energy efficiency measures, resulting in a further 7,000+ tonnes of carbon savings. The client has added a further £1.5m to the project to improve the overall fabric of the properties including roof work, window and external door and canopy renewals, external lights etc and there are possibly a further 50+ private properties that could increase the value of the contract to some £4m.
