Pembroke terrace case study

Retrofit and renovation of a Victorian Terrace in Penarth.

Retrofit and renovation of a Victorian Terrace in PenarthThis was an end of terrace which we renovated to improve the energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
We then built a new property on to the end of this in StyroStone which boasts walls , and roof of 0.14 u value. It is made air tight using Siga membrane throughout the roof and a range of Siga tapes and products around windows etc. The whole project supersedes all building reg requirements.

I think it is a fantastic example of Victorian and modern build in harmony alongside each other

This project involved the complete renovation of a Victorian end of Terrace to modern standards.
All that remained of the existing building was the frontal facade and half of the roof! Every wall and floor was removed and replaced with new super insulated walls ans floors and a heavily insulated roof .

Ducts are pre installed for MVHR and the property now has underfloor heating to ground floor and rads to upper floors. The hot water is supplied via an A rated gas condensing boiler. Planning has been granted to build a new unit onto the end of this property. This will commence shortly and the new dwelling will be built to levels in accordance with passive house standards.

The main fabric of the building is to be StyroStone 350mm blocks which will provide a U value of 0.147.
We anticipate fitting solar thermal panels to both properties and introducing thermal stores, rainwater attenuation measures as well as MVHR to ensure that the properties are future proofed.
