Fife Council

Building on the strong relationship we’ve developed with Fife Council over the past six years, Everwarm secured a contract to install external wall insulation (EWI) to private and council‐owned properties across the region.

All insulation measures have been included in the programme, predominantly hard-to-treat cavity wall, cavity wall and loft insulation.

Works being delivered across the local authority area, including Chapelhill, Linktown, Overton, Overton Mains, Fair Isle and Sinclairtown. All properties were of no-fines construction, and are a mixture of tenement flats, maisonettes, terraced houses and semi‐detached houses. EWI was selected as the primary measure given the no‐fines construction of the properties; Alumasc’s BBA-approved Swisslab was chosen to ensure full compliance with all building regulations and Ofgem guidance. Additionally, ancillary measures within the council’s specification include the replacement of downpipes.

Given the proximity of the Sinclairtown community to the coast, 10 flatted blocks required an alternative bead within the Swisslab system. To avoid coastal erosion, we worked closely with Alumasc, the system designer, to ensure these properties were retrofitted with a system that contained stainless steel bead. This alteration to the original system design will protect residents’ homes against corrosion while safeguarding the lifetime of the EWI installation itself.

As a testament to the success of our scheme, we are currently delivering the next phase of Fife Council’s HEEPS programme alongside an additional EWI and roofing programme to a large flatted development.
