Insulated Render System Transforms New Build Apartments

6 Oct 10 Developed by Great Places Housing Group, Tulloch Court is a stylish £5.68m scheme of 46 self-contained apartments aimed at the over 55’s.

Designed by architects Croft Goode and built by Seddon Construction Group the development features nautical inspired exteriors with bold coloured render and internal communal facilities, including a spa and Jacuzzi. 

The timber frame structure required a lightweight insulation system.  A WBS Insulated Render System incorporating 40mm Phenolic insulation was chosen as the thermal properties of the Phenolic insulation gave the apartments an exceedingly low u-value of 0.18W/m²K, which will subsequently help towards lowering residents heating costs.

The phenolic boards were fixed to timber battens to create the necessary drainage cavity, then a K&A basecoat was applied to the insulation and encapsulated in a layer of 1.5mm Wetherby Silicone Render in grey to the ground floor area with additional striking red and white panels to the upper floors.

Due to the timber frame construction, slip joints were installed at every floor level to allow for movement.
