Erneley Close Passivhaus Retrofit

Erneley Close Passivhaus Retrofit

Speedclad was able to assist its client in meeting stringent Passivhaus criteria on this scheme by developing a system of work to combat the challenges posed by the existing build.

This scheme regenerated dilapidated residential blocks in Longsight, Manchester, into 32 masionettes and 6 bungalows that achieved the EnerPHit standard. When the poor condition of the existing inner leaf was revealed, Speedclad assisted by developing and installing a new timber infill frame with 300mm insulation and ensuring all internal and external joints were adequately sealed. This reduced abortive taping and other remedial measures. We then installed the eye-catching rainscreen cladding which appears to dramatically change colour.
