BISF Refurbishment

Client: South Tyneside Homes
Main Contractor: Dunnelm Property Services, J.D.P Ltd.
Location: East Boldon

Sykes Specialist Contracting Ltd has just completed the installation of the Alumasc Swisspan System to 30 BISF Houses at South Tyneside. The contract was completed in three weeks and from a delayed start due to a change in design the contract was delivered to programme at the agreed cost.

BISF (British Institute of Steel Federation) Houses required a thermal upgrade and the existing cladding had to be replaced. The first floor cladding was replaced with a similar product, however the insulation was upgraded. On the ground floor the existing eternity panel was removed and replaced with the Alumasc Swisspan System of External Wall Insulation. The Swisspan system was ideally suited to the scheme as the system comprises of steel sections laid horizontally along the elevations which are securely fixed back to the structure. Insulation is fixed in between the rails and subsequently rendered with the Alumasc polymer scrim and base coat and finished with the Alumasc Silicone render.

Structherm are the UK’s number one experts in the external refurbishment of non-traditional housing and high rise buildings.

Our unique Structural Insulated Facades can extend the life of a property by 30 years, dramatically improve the thermal performance, reduce fuel bills and provide a modern and fresh appearance.

We work closely with Structural Engineers, Architects and Social Landlords to design systems suitable for all types of non-trads including BISFs. Our system has spanning capabilities meaning we can span from each loadbearing column to the next one. This means that the weight of the system is transferred down into the concrete foundations whereas standard External Wall Insulation systems add more weight to the existing cladding which is usually very weak.

Our system has excellent racking resistance, meaning that it stiffens up the property and prevents any movement which would otherwise cause the render finish on a standard external wall insulation to crack.

For expert advise and a quality system call us on 01484 850098 or visit where you will find product literature, technical info and case studies.
