Refurbishment Case Study 1

Five Edinburgh Tenement Flats – Wall and Window Upgrades

Refurbishment Case Study 1

This case study describes a number of upgrade works, carried out to five B-listed tenement flats in Edinburgh, aiming to improve the acoustic and thermal performance of the exterior building fabric through upgrades of both windows and walls. The pre- and post-intervention performance of the properties is discussed in relation to any upgrade work carried out. The case study also explores the practicalities of carrying out such upgrade work whilst a building is occupied.
