“Luxury Living Éireann was contracted to undertake a complete refurbishment of the Town Hall Theatre and Conferrence Centre, Kilkelly Road, Kiltimagh. This project involved a complete removal of everything in the building down to the bare walls and complete restoration. We were able to hold the Local District Court exactly nine weeks form the date of which LLÉ took possession of the site. In addition to the above, LLÉ provided a very high standard of workmanship. The finished facility is something that we are very proud of and so should the contractors. Overall, LLÉ in conjunction with John Halligan, Architects, Charlestown provided a very effective and high standard of service and workmanship.”
Luxury Living Éireann have a insulation system in place for buildings that do not have a cavity wall. For buildings with a single skin construction (mass concrete, precast concrete, cavity block) insulation is fixed to the outside of the building and plastered over with decorative low maintenance finish.
Although this process is more expensive than cavity wall insulation, there is an SEAI grant of €4000 available for external wall insulation under the Better Energy Homes Scheme. Passive housing can be achieved through the use of external wall insulation as there is no restriction on the depth of the insulation and very low U-Values can be achieved.
External Wall Insulation (EWI) is a composite cladding system comprised of suitable insulation and waterproof coating which is applied to all the external walls of a building. The application of EWI reduces heating bills, and consequently, carbon emissions also.
It uses the fabric of the building like a storage radiator. Because the heat can no longer escape through the outer layer of insulation, it is reflected back into the living areas, creating a constant warm home.
With up to 40% heat lost through external walls, EWI can help reduce your heating bills by up to 40%. It can also reduce your carbon footprint by cutting your CO2 emissions by up to 2.5 tonnes per year.
