High-performance webertherm XM External Wall Insulation (EWI) by Saint-Gobain Weber has been specified for the showcase Skyline regeneration scheme in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. This building, once occupied by HM Land Registry and known as Brickdale House, has been carefully re-designed and converted by Chase New Homes, of Waltham Abbey, Essex. A variety of 150 contemporary residential suites and apartments designed to appeal to first-time buyers and investors has been created.
Webertherm XM, a lightweight render protected external wall insulation system was applied, which has created a striking and stylish appearance. Weber’s EWI has also improved the thermal performance of the building to a comfortable and sustainable 0.27W/m²K U-value.
Julia Wathen, of Build-Therm Services, who carried out the application, was operations manager on the Skyline project: “We really enjoy working with the Weber EWI systems as the materials are always of very high quality. We had 1000m² to apply and the result is a crisp, bright finish which adds to the modern style of the apartments.”
