Social, Landlords & Housing Associations
External wall insulation (EWI) is a cost-effective, high quality solution to upgrading and refurbishing housing stock, giving new life to buildings and improving quality-of-life for those who live and work in them.
Whatever the building style of housing associations (from single to multi-storey) and construction materials (including concrete, steel and timber-framed) as specialists in EWI techniques Gaffney & Guinan can offer a solution to suit even the most challenging and hard-to-treat structures.
EWI is invariably the most cost-effective way of bringing older buildings such as concrete construction tower-blocks, which housing associations are currently made of, into line with current energy-conservation standards.
As well as reducing potential problems with cold, noise and damp, EWI can play a major part in improving the quality of life for residents and helping to regenerate whole neighbourhoods.
Extending the life-span of building stock, cutting maintenance bills and adding value with Gaffney & Guinan EWI solutions makes this one of the most sensible long-term investments that any housing association or landlord can make.
By renovating and insulating their property externals landlords can increase the value of their housing stock, cut energy bills by up to 40% and make a very positive impact on the quality of life for their tenants. In our experience this helps reduce turnover and cuts down on void periods.
