As a sub-contractor appointed to work directly for City West Homes, Avalon Sustainable Energy Solutions tendered for a Cavity Wall Insulation project to install 920 flats with CWI measures. The buildings identified for inclusion were the most awkward to access for insulation. Because of this they had been placed into the second phase to enable City West Homes to achieve their Phase 1 targets.
Whilst access is not normally an issue for rope access technicians, the point of delivery of materials and access to the buildings is sometimes more complex requiring greater consideration of rigging points, working environment and the ability to physically deliver material to the site. However, using Avalon, City West Homes were able to undertake this project which was carried out successfully and ahead of program.
