Project Case Study – Vale of Glamorgan Council

We were contracted, following a successful tender, to undertake refurbishment works on 20 No blocks of flats in Barry on behalf of Vale of Glamorgan Council.

These blocks of flats were part brick, part render, with failed Cavity Wall insulation. We were instructed to remove the old cavity wall insulation and insert new cavity wall insulation, and examine and replaced wall ties. We then applied External Wall Insulation to the entire blocks. This greatly improved the appearance of the properties, and their thermal efficiencies.

A number of the blocks were also re-roofed, and balconies were re-surfaced and had new railings fitted.

The finish to the properties was chosen as texture, with Brick slip features as a soldier course to the windows, as can be seen below. The 8 blocks in Parkland Walk were also re-roofed.
