Case Study: Deep Retrofit, Skerries

Brief:

This project was to extend, renovate & modernise a bungalow, within an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA), & to provide a modern energy efficient family home. This project was changeling because it is a terrace house with limited access within an ACA & the involvement of the local Heritage Officer was critical to the overall success of the project.

Process:

This project involved the extension of the existing bungalow to the rear & a dormer extension overhead. To get the energy efficiency required we replaced the existing ground floor, insulated the existing walls, replaced the windows, replaced the heating system & provided solar panels. This resulted in an improved energy rating from a F3 to a B1.
