The design and construction of buildings that require better thermal intervention for energy efficiency has become an important consideration for architects as the selection of inappropriate products can have a negative impact on project costs.
Design elements of sustainable buildings
Sustainable buildings do not necessarily require specific construction methods, but rather refer to a holistic approach that brings together elements of design. When all the elements are integrated effectively, a building will meet the necessary requirements. Climatic zones are extremely important when considering insulation interventions required for roofs in the different regions.
Products designed to meet the future
Alutherm is designed to meet the demand for future sustainable building solutions. The product has excellent R-values, good noise reduction properties and is fully faced on both surfaces especially for high humidity areas.
The product comes in different thicknesses and lengths and is under a 15 year warranty as required by Building Regulations.
The product is used in various applications on its own or in conjunction with other products, for instance a board product. By carefully integrating different products, R values can be achieved and money can be saved.
Sustainable buildings are the future
The past few years has seen a huge need to measure and manage the energy usage of buildings, not just for individual households, but also for businesses and institutions wanting to reduce costs and become more responsible with their use of valuable energy resources. By understanding how the insulation of the building envelope can immediately impact on the cost effectiveness of running a building, it becomes obvious that decisions around the types of insulation materials required for a building are critical during the design and construction phases.
