Kingdom Housing Association – 12 Flat Church Conversion

We were approached by the Housing Association to suggest a solution for the converted church at Greenside Court, Leslie…the conversion was undertaken 14 years ago where the walls were stripped of lath and plaster, new framing installed and the interior remodelled. Unfortunately, the builders neglected install any insulation and as a result…an old stone structure, large drafty voids…well you can imagine. All the tenants were living in cold, expensive to heat properties; not the best environment for anyone, and especially those with small children. It was not unheard of to have the heating on constantly throughout the day, just to get the properties up to an acceptable temperature.

Kingdom Housing Association regularly carry out improvement works to their properties and provide means for the tenants to redecorate themselves where necessary…we were tasked with providing not only the installation but also full reinstatement to décor-ready stage which involved replacing the plasterboard hatches and filling and sanding any injection holes. The scheduling was made trickier where the tenants were still living in the properties. Having notified all our clients, and fully informing them of the scope and nature of the work, our team got to work. Each room was treated in turn, flat by flat. Many of the outside walls presented few issues and in many cases the smaller flats could be insulated and reinstated in a day.

A few weeks later, and the job was done…some tenants reported that they now only have the heating on for just one hour twice a day…the properties now heat up quickly, and retain the heat for much longer. And importantly…their heating bills are a fraction of what they used to be!
