Extreme insulation: Avalon Sustainable provides an unusual solution

2 July 2014

When Keepmoat was tasked with insulating 120 ft-high tower blocks in a short time, the company went for an unusual access solution.

After considering several access options, the team from Keepmoat opted to work with Avalon Sustainable Energy Solutions, using a team of abseilers to install the insulation.

A team of eight abseilers worked their way down the blocks installing cavity wall insulation into 377 homes in the Avondale Square Estate in Bermondsey, Southwark.

The high-rise works will help drive down the energy bills of households, with residents expected to see energy bills reduced by £140 per year and save more than 7,500 tonnes of CO2 over the lifetime of the project.
