The Solution for Hard to Treat Cavities

Location: Guildford

Leading national education property consultant NPS has used BBA certified spray foam insulation to improve the thermal capabilities of the walls in a school building of Victorian descent. The project involved an extension being built and consequential improvements being carried out to the existing building.

The office that is based in Brighton, of the public sector owned organisation, has completed work on a scheme involving the construction of Nurture Rooms at four schools. Throughout this project, NPS acted as a specifier and architect. The company specified us for use in Stoughton Infant and Primary School in Guildford because of the narrow width cavities in the Victorian construction.

The quick application of injection grade rigid closed-cell polyurethane foam which prevents air infiltration and air leakage. Before the installation, the foam will not settle or shrink over time, providing sustainable insulation for the building’s life span.

Helen Bayliss of NPS explained, “To comply with building regulations when building the extension we had to also make improvements to the existing building and we opted to improve the thermal insulation of the walls.

“I chose The Spray Foam People because of its thermal capabilities after reading about a similar project in which it was used. The installation went smoothly with no hiccups. It was the perfect solution for this job as the cavity was very small and the skins were uneven due to the materials used in the Victorian era.”
