The BBA-certified external wall insulation system provides thermal protection, and is designed to meet strict fire protection requirements. It combines non-combustible mineral-fibre insulation board with a mineral reinforcing coat, glass-fibre reinforcing mesh and high performance decorative finishes.
The external wall insulation also offers protection against weathering, damp and algae growth, making it ideal for buildings exposed to harsh weather conditions.
New windows, doors and guttering were also installed, contributing to a full facelift for each of the Council’s properties.
As part of the scheme, Morgan Sindall Property Services will be completing the external wall insulation on a total of 600 properties by 2023. Also, Basildon Borough Council will be building 994 new homes, providing housing for over 3000 people.
