New Classroom Conversion

This 1960s pre-fab bungalow (a Colt Home) required refurbishment and remodelling works to convert it from a residential building into a venue for receiving school field trip visitors and other groups.

Conker provided Building Regulations plans and specifications for the works, which included a wall and roof insulation scheme for improved energy efficiency. The bulk of the work was carried out by contractor, Home Improvements and Supplies Ltd under the JCT Minor Works contract, which Conker administered, while other works were done by Trust volunteers to enable cost savings.

Ecomerchant provided Steico insulation products at a discounted rate, for walls, floor and roof. We selected different products for each to suit the situation, and undertook interstitial condensation risk analysis. The works are being completed by trust volunteers.
