Refurbishment Case Study 10

This case study describes thermal performance improvements undertaken at two residential properties in Rothesay, Isle of Bute, during 2011. In keeping with the preceding Refurbishment Case Studies, the aim of this work was to upgrade the property - by improving its thermal performance in a manner compatible with the existing building fabric. Three types of improvement were trialled in this Case Study; the addition of insulation to internal walls, secondary glazing to windows, and additional insulation to a door.
