Improving living conditions and reducing energy costs through the LADS2 scheme with Soltherm EWI systems

The Park Homes development at Wootton Hall is a series of timber framed residences, which have received LADS2 funding to install external wall insulation throughout the development.

Soltherm EWI systems were specified for this project. The Premium Silicone EWI solution provided thermal insulation as well as increased fire safety and protection from the effects of weathering.

The LADs scheme, Phase 2

The government is allocating £500 million funding to local authorities through the Local Authority Delivery (LAD) scheme, which will improve energy efficiency in homes of low-income households and help eliminate fuel poverty. The investment also phases out high carbon fossil fuels while delivering progress towards net zero by 2050.

Of this total, £300 million has been allocated towards local Net Zero hubs. Local authorities in each of the five hub regions are funded to deliver energy efficiency upgrades in low income homes by the end of June 2022. Park Homes at Wootton Hall is one such project.

“This was completely free. Residents qualified under the council driven funding. Soltherm, as an assistant provider to us, provides us with a lot of technical backup, a lot of technical support as we go forward. Everything they use comes with a 25 year guarantee, which is important to me. We provide a 25 year guarantee. It’s important to have a system provider that goes back to back with us.” – Terry Heydon, Park Home Energy
