Category: Case study
Written by Super User

33,000m2 of Dryvit Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) was installed on 11 new community campus sites incorporating 14 secondary and primary schools across Edinburgh and Perthshire in Scotland. The works formed part of two Public Private Partnership (PPP) schemes worth £269m between Axiom Education and both Edinburgh City and Perth and Kinross Councils. Holyrood High School in Edinburgh has approximately 2,500m2 of the Outsulation insulated render system installed. Dryvit's comprehensive Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) fire approvals were instrumental in satisfying insurer requirements for the project, which allowed the cost effective expanded polystyrene (EPS) based Outsulation EWI system to be specified for use on the scheme. Completed in 2009.

Millfield Avenue, Walthamstow, London

Category: Case study

This refurbishment scheme involved the removal of an existing mineral wool insulated render system that had failed and the application of the Dryvit Drysulation external wall insulation (EWI) system. The brickwork required fracture repairs using a Helibar system to stabalise the substrate prior to the application of the Drysulation EWI system. Dryvit LL high performance (grey) expanded polystyrene (EPS) was installed to exceed energy performance requirements. HDP hydrophobic silicone based finish was then applied to give the buiding a well deserved aesthetic lift. Client: Ascham Homes Walthamstow, Main Contractor: Osborne. 600m2 Drysulation. Completed 2012.
