This major refurbishment and repair project, where Edwards Hart are lead consultants, has just entered its second phase. The continued emphasis according to Edwards Hart Director Professor John Edwards is to: “Reinstate vapour permeability as much as we can, but given the extensive past attempts to install what are essentially vapour barriers, we have developed a bespoke solution that involves both”. The project is very diverse in nature and involves extensive repair such as grouting stone walls but also refurbishment such as new kitchens. Energy conservation is also included and here retrofit measures include the installation of mechanical heat recovery units.
