Insulating 5 High Rise Blocks, Wigan

In 2016, Seddon Construction appointed SBS to install external wall insulation to five high-rise residential blocks at Scholes Village in Wigan. Work was completed on the first block in September, with the next two blocks due to start in October. Two more are scheduled for 2017.

The project's first element involved preparing the substrates in readiness for fitting of the new system. The chosen external wall insulation manufacturer was PermaRock Products and its fire-safe mineral fibre insulation system was duly applied with a brick slip finish on the ground level, and a Silicone K finish on the floors above.

Work is progressing efficiently and on schedule.
