There is an urgent requirement for housing in Ireland now both private & social and this building had been standing vacant for at least 10 years.
The project was to do a complete overhaul of the building both internally & externally with all modern energy features and private resident’s courtyard, the development is close to the town centre.
The building was originally developed as an apartment building of private apartments for sale. The quality of the structure was poor and when the construction crash occurred in 2008/9 it was never occupied and lay abandoned for about 10 years.
It was purchased by Louth County Council and is now developed for social apartments. As you can see before EWI works began the building was in very poor shape. There was a complete overhaul of the structure internally & externally. The EWI part of the project took about 6 months in total.
The Soltherm AF-P+ system with EPS insulation was used with mineral wool fire breaks added horizontally and vertically between each apartment.
The colours used to finish the building were:
Plain white, Grey 38C, Yellow 03C and Orange 10B
