Home Insulation Requirements for Architects

HIGHLY EXPERIENCED COMPANY

Architect Information from Weatherseal

For the architect the priority is very different from that of the homeowner. From the initial planning phase of the operation the structure that is being designed must meet all relevant building regulatory requirements such as in the case of new build homes, the focus is on ensuring that the property complies with Part L conservation of fuel and energy. This means that the targets laid down within these requirements must be met as a minimum.

How can we help you to do that?

Weatherseal are happy to liaise with you at any point of the journey, whether that be at planning stage or pre-build. We will help you to put together an insulation specification that will meet your targets, whilst also providing a full U-Value calculation to show that the works shall comply with Part L.

Our focus is on the elimination of uncontrolled cold air whilst maximising the insulation values to reduce energy costs. Air leakage through unwanted gaps in the structure not only increases heat loss, but can also lead to interstitial condensation which itself can reduce the performance of the insulation layer and risk causing deterioration of the fabric.

We can also provide a full condensation risk analysis taking into account aspects of the building envelope, and advise on how best to avoid any potential risk such as cold bridging.
