EWI for New Build

Increasingly developers are looking for quicker and more cost effective solutions to turn design into finished build and are favouring a steel or concrete frame with lightweight external walls constructed using SFS and insulated render systems. Benefits of using these methods to build are easier and quicker erection and weatherproofing of the building leading to faster fit out times, flexibility in achieving end ‘U’ Values and easier integration of a variety of façade finishes.

Through early collaboration with Architects, highly cost effective and quick builds can be achieved with state of the art finishes, materials and designs incorporating curves, edges and feature details as well as traditional elements.

These methods also allow for more innovative thinking when utilising existing space, for example, allowing additional new build floors to be added to existing buildings whilst also encapsulating the entire façade as one. This provides developers with real commercial advantages when considering projects and setting out budget proposals.

The use of insulated render facades is becoming more prevalent on both commercial and domestic developments alike, with an increasing number of retailers choosing to build their stores using these methods.
