Timber Frame Supply and Erect for a three house complex in the town of Dundrum in Dublin.
Our client approached us expressing that they wanted three well insulated houses that would be easy to heat to be located in the town of Dundrum, Dublin. It was the intention of the client to build these houses for future sale. One the houses were sold before construction began and the main selling point was that the house would be of a timber frame construction.
Kilbroney Timberframe has provided the following specification to meet our clients’ needs, leaving them with the houses they desire.
External Wall Insulation:
Insulated with 150mm Fibre wool and 40mm Therm rigid PIP insulation board fitted on the inside of the studwork. This gives an overall wall u-value of 0.18wm²k.
Internal Wall Insulation:
Insulated with 100mm Earthwool Ecose Acoustic between the studs, to provide great acoustic values.
First Floor Insulation:
Insulated with 25mm Therm Rigid PIR at first floor level in order to create a sound break.
150mm loft wool insulation fitted in between joists and 150mm loft wool above the joists. 25mm therm rigid PIR insulation board fitted below the joists. Combined this gives the overall ceiling a u-value of 0.12wm²k.
