Actis Hybrid insulation has made its second appearance on one of George Clarke’s popular Remarkable Renovations TV programmes—helping insulate a Northamptonshire village hall for a couple looking for a grand retirement project!
Architectural designer Stuart Ellis and his wife Theresa had been looking to downsize to a bungalow when they changed tack, bought a Victorian village school and decided to convert it into a dramatic, cosy, family friendly space.
Stuart brought in his namesake (but no relation) Actis Regional Sales Director, Steve Ellis, to help him specify the insulation.
The scheme saw Stuart and his builder son Jamie transform the double height building into a stunning home in just seven months while he and Theresa lived in a mobile home in the garden. The project had an added frisson—it needed to be completed before Jamie’s wedding—a feat he achieved with just three days to spare!
Steve specified 367 m2 of 50 mm and 33 m2 of 105 mm honeycomb-style insulation Hybris, 180 m2 of insulating vapour control layer H Control Hybrid and 225 m2 of insulating breather membrane Boost R Hybrid Roof in the roof and walls of the existing property and the roof of the new build element. This achieved a U value of 0.18/m2K in both the extension and existing roof and 0.25/m2K in the walls of the original part of the property.
