British Iron & Steel Federation (BISF) properties date back to 1944 & were built across the country in response to The Ministry of Works Emergency Housing program. Built on a steel frame system with steel trussed sheeting to the top half & rendering on metal lath to the bottom half, these properties suffer from poor U-values as low as 0.881w/m2k to the 1st floor & 0.957w/m2kto the ground floor.
The project site was in a very prominent position & therefore in need of a modern solution. The main objective was to raise the u-values & improve the comfort levels for the tenants, to be achieved with the tenants in occupation & causing minimal disruption
Hanson/ Structherm Carried out a detailed assessment of the properties & after completion of a pilot scheme (involving various other systems) The Structherm structural cladding system was chosen with a 'Settef' render to the top half & 'macerend' brick effect render to the bottom half.
The end result is a visually pleasing development much improved u-values (0.305w/m2k), making these properties comfortable & helping the tenants achieve lower fuel bills.
