Summary

This publication:

  • Summarises recent statistics about the age and form of construction and the UK’s existing housing stock.
  • Focuses on those construction types that are ‘hard to treat’ – approximately one-third, most of which are uninsulated, single-skin masonry.
  • Describes a solution that offers a combined effect of improved thermal performance and appearance – attractive, insulated timber cladding.
  • Provides typical construction details and thermal performance data for the junctions with other walls, roofs, floors, windows and doors, and building services.

Case studies

The distinctive and elegant shape of the Velodrome acts as a landmark to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Dungeness Beach in Kent is the largest area of shingle in Europe – 1,600 hectares of it. The harsh and dramatic landscape, dominated by the bulk of Dungeness B power station and dotted with a cottage or a fisherman’s weekend hut, is an architectural conservation area and has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) to preserve its unique ecology of grasses and shingle plants.
