The Tonbridge and Malling area has over 7000 properties managed by social landlord, Russet Homes.

Over 600 of these are Wimpy No-fines properties which give extremely poor thermal performance and residents have found their homes hard to heat and prone to condensation problems. With this in mind a pilot scheme was commissioned to insulate 39 of the properties to see just how effective external wall insulation could be.

Construction consultants Baily Garner specifically selected Wetherby Building Systems after detailed evaluations of a number of external wall insulation (EWI) systems. Wetherby played a considerable role in preparing specifications and U value

By: Rachael Doyle   •   February 8, 2013


Kirklees BISF Properties

Wetherby Building Systems Ltd has taken on some sensational new schemes which will ultimately help to reduce negative environmental impact.

The temporary homes were constructed in the 1950’s are still standing securely today, but lacked adequate insulation. The properties were not only unattractive, but are also extremely difficult to heat due to the poor thermal properties of the structure.

This was something Wetherby successfully overcame with one of their external wall insulation (EWI) systems. The collaboration with Kirklees Council and contractors

Demolition Avoided With Wetherby Refurbishment

By: Rachael Doyle   •   January 25, 2013


Gascoyne Estate, Hackney is home to four 10-storey tower blocks managed by Hackney Homes in east London. These blocks were constructed in the 1960’s where little or no attention was paid to thermal insulation. This rendered the flats cold, damp and costly to keep warm.

Now thanks to Wetherby Building Systems Ltd, the UK market leader in the manufacture and distribution of insulated render systems, the thermally inefficient tower blocks have been transformed into modern, insulated, energy efficient homes. New external wall insulation installed by Renocon Ltd, along with other energy efficiency measures, have significantly brought down the

Wetherby Manage Private Homeowner Initiative CESP Scheme

By: Rachael Doyle   •   March 26, 2012


Wetherby Building Systems Limited are partnering with Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, and are Managing Agent for a private homeowners scheme, where External Wall Insulation will be installed to approximately 1,700 No Fines properties in specific zones of Kirkby.

No Fines properties are recognised to be ‘hard to heat homes’. Around 45% of a property’s heat is lost through poorly insulated walls, so the installation of the Wetherby Insulated Render System, incorporating 60mm Phenolic insulation, will potentially improve the thermal efficiency of these properties by over 80%. The overall scheme will also prevent in excess of 230,000 tonnes of CO2 being released into the atmosphere over
