Hawthorn Road Retrofit for the Future on site...!

ATA's Natural Materials Retrofit for the Future project is well underway on site with contractors Sandwood Design & Build.
All the structural works are now complete, and the majority of wood-fibre party-wall insulation has been installed and had it's first coat of lime plaster. The external walls are to internally lined with sheepswool insulation. These are all hygroscopic 'breathable' materials to deal naturally with fabric and internal moisture vapour.
The mechanical heat recovery ventilation and solar thermal kit are next to go in.
The contractor's are taking fantastic care over our air-tight detailing, and the tenants are busy choosing paint colours for when they move in.
