Product:

  • Permarock 90mm eps solid wall insulation with a choice of colours

  • 1.5mm textured finish render

Property Types:

The brief and a little history.

Although great for football fans, the properties situated on Lord Street and Bishop Street find themselves adjacent to Field Mill, home of Football League club Mansfield Town. The chaos during match days and the destruction it occasionally brought combined with the age of the housing has had somewhat of a negative impact on the area.

Following a recent survey, Lord Street was named Mansfield’s cheapest street for house prices. As a result of many homes originally being built using traditional solid brick, many residents found it difficult and expensive to warm their rooms. The improvements were conceived as a way to help families break out of the cycle of fuel poverty, something that Westville care deeply about.

As a result of many homes originally being built using traditional solid brick, many residents found it difficult and expensive to warm their rooms. The improvements were conceived as a way to help families break out of the cycle of fuel poverty, something that Westville care deeply about.

In October 2020, Mansfield District Council allowed £508,000 of funding to go into the Green Homes Grant Scheme and as a result, External Wall Insulation improvements were offered to inhabitants of both streets. The grant on offer to residents to help secure the funding needed for the insulation improvements that Westville had been appointed to carry out.

In October 2020, Mansfield District Council was successful in a bid for the Governments Local Authority delivery scheme allowing them to support local residents improving the thermal performance of their homes.

The work and the challenges.

Following the appointment of Westville, work commenced with the scaffolding first erected in November 2020. The scope of the project involved applying Permarock 90mm eps and finishing the houses with a 1.5mm textured finish to over 42 properties of all shapes and sizes. Working during the terrible winter weather with no place for parking on the narrow streets, Westville decided to set up the compound in a local car park around the corner to alleviate traffic and dirt issues.

The entire project was implemented following rigorous Covid procedures to protect both staff working on-site and to residents of the entire area, with Westville having to display proper protocols and care to gain the trust of working inside people’s homes over the uncertain winter period. When word spread of our team’s professionalism, it became easier to progress on our work in often tight areas.

Results.

After completion of the project in August 2021, the initial goal of helping residents move out of the fuel poverty cycle has been a resounding success! Residents of both Lord Street & Bishop Street have commented just how easy it is to heat their homes and keep them heated.

Another positive remark from the locals was that thanks to the combination of the quality of the work from Westville and the finish from the selected products, the visuals of the area has improved dramatically. The area once again becoming a visually appealing, maybe even to visiting football fans as they pass through!

As a result of the work done by Westville, the total estimated energy bill savings could be up to £8,820 per year, that’s an average of £210 saved her household!*

Environmentally speaking, this project will save an enormous 37.3 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year. That’s the same amount of carbon sequestered by 26 football pitches-worth of trees, that’s more than enough pitches to start a new league!**
