BRE VICTORIAN TERRACE

Saint-Gobain materials were used for a BRE, Government and industry partnership project to transform a dilapidated Victorian stable block into three energy efficient terraced homes for 21st century living.

THE TASK

The project was aimed at generating new knowledge of the most effective ways of upgrading existing solid wall private and public housing stock so that it is highly energy efficient, costs less to run, emits significantly less carbon and meets the requirements of the UK’s ageing population.


LET’S GET TECHNICAL

The original building exhibited a number of features and problems associated with housing from this era including solid brick walls, sash windows, dampness, disrepair and poor thermal performance. The Saint-Gobain products and solutions specified helped to upgrade the original building from an Energy Performance Certificate rating of F, to A and B rated terraced properties.
