Refurbishment Case Study 9

Leighton Library, Installation of Loft Insulation

Refurbishment Case Study 9

This report describes thermal performance improvements undertaken at The Leighton Library in Dunblane. In keeping with the preceding Refurbishment Case Studies, the aim of this work was to upgrade the property and improve its thermal performance using materials which were appropriate to the fabric of the building. 

Due to the increasing cost of heating the building there was a desire on the part of the Trustees to improve the energy efficiency of the building. In 2011 Historic Scotland awarded a grant to the Trustees to install insulation in the roof space.
