Murdishaw Project

2022 – 4 months – £900,000

For another recent project, we were instructed to retrofit and upgrade some more EQUANS housing stock, this time in Murdishaw, Runcorn. The properties in question consisted of 130 bungalows that needed to be brought up to a suitable living standard.

As with other EQUANS projects, this was conducted under the PAS2030 scheme. This means that all energy-efficient measures, such as new double-glazed windows and doors, as well as insulation and cladding, need to be fitted by accredited tradespeople to ensure they meet current BSI standards. Being fully certified to handle PAS2030 projects, we were able to give them the benefit of our expertise.

The upgrade process includes installing new doors and windows on each property, as well as replacing the roofs to ensure better heat retention. We also installed external wall insulation for the same reason. The exterior walls were finished with Wetherby render, which is a low-maintenance mix of silicone and acrylic that is flexible, hard-wearing, and resistant to cracking and UV light.
