Stylite Passivehaus Foundation - Lanark

July 2018

Project: Residential New Build Housing
Location: Lanark, South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Sector: Civil Engineering
System: Stylite Passivehaus Foundation Insulation
Size: 250m

Problems
The UK construction industry is currently facing two major challenges, firstly Building Regulations are tightening, requiring more energy-efficient buildings, and targeting zero carbon new homes. Whilst many conventional buildings designed and built in the past few years are demonstrating a performance gap (poor performance compared to predictions) in terms of energy use, ventilation and thermal comfort. To add to these problems there is also rising energy costs and around 5.5 million households in the UK currently living in fuel poverty.

Client Requirement
A well known local building contractor wanted to build two show homes to demonstrate their construction skills and alternative modern methods of building.
They wanted to build homes that were to Passivehaus standards in order to future
proof them from any changes to Building Regulation thermal requirements and to
minimise energy usage throughout the life of the buildings.

Design Solution
The Stylite Passivehaus Foundation Insulation system was introduced to the client, who quickly saw the benefits it offered. SPI worked closely with the client to specify and design the foundations to be fully compatible with a
Structural Insulated Panel (SIPS) wall system which also incorporated Stylite Plustherm insulation.

The Stylite Passivehaus Foundation system comprises of lightweight Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) units contour cut off-site and delivered to site ready to lay. “L” shaped high density units are positioned around the perimeter whilst
flat EPS boards are used to complete the first layer. A second layer of EPS boards are then laid in a break bonded pattern to create a channel ready for the concrete to be poured in.


The Stylite Passivehaus Foundation offered the following key benefits to our client:
1. Excellent thermal performance 0.10 W/m2K
2. Underfloor heat loss reduced from 65% to 12%
3. No specialist installation skills required
4. Save on materials, labour and time
5. 60% less concrete required

Result
Having an insulated foundation system meant that any cold bridging at the ground and wall junction was eliminated whilst the super low U-value of 0.10 W/m2K met the clients requirements to future proof the homes. The holistic design solution met the Passivehaus standards demonstrating the homes also have reduced energy usage and low energy bills.

“Our clients vision to build two homes to the Passivehaus standards has been made
possible by the use of some innovative products such as the Stylite Passivehaus
Foundation system. Our design team worked hard to provide a great solution,
and once on site it proved to be very quick and easy to install.”

Stylite External Wall Insulation

June 2018

Project: Viewforth High School - Windmill Community Campus
Location: Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland
Sector: New Build Education
System: Stylite External Wall Insulation
Size: 2,000m2
Client: Fife Council

Problems
Viewforth High School in Kirkcaldy was built in 1908 and due to it's age was deemed to no longer meet the needs of the local community. The building was costly to maintain, had high fuel bills, and was not considered suitable as a modern teaching facility.

Client Requirement
As part of their Building Fife’s Future programme, Fife Council wanted to replace Viewforth High School with a new facility.They wanted one campus to house multiple services including a high school, primary school, library, customer service office and a new centre for community use. Fife Council’s proposal was to create a new campus known as Windmill Community Campus. It would feature buildings with high quality design, high functionality, be fit for a modern curriculum and promote a culture of lifelong learning within communities. The new Viewforth High School was to offer 600 pupils and parents a very different experience than the old building, including state of the art teaching spaces and technology along with a new sports centre.

Design Solution
The main contractor, working on behalf of Fife Council, specified a lightweight steel framing system for the new high school building. After erecting the main frame a carrier / sheathing board was fitted to clad the structure.

Stylite External Wall Insulation boards, comprising of lightweight Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) boards measuring (L)1200 x (W)600 x (T)200, were then installed directly to the carrier board using an adhesive fix.

Two layers of base coat render and a final decorative top coat were then applied to the insulation boards to provide a protective and weatherproof finish to the school.

The Stylite EWI offered the following key benefits to our client:
1. Excellent thermal performance
2. High compression and tensile strength
3. Minimal water absorption
4. Rapid adhesive fixing
5. Lightweight and cost effective

Result
The external wall insulation system, in conjunction with the steel frame and carrier board, achieved a super low U-value of 0.14W/m2K. This level of thermal performance resulted in reduced energy usage and low energy bills for the school whilst also future proofing it for its whole life cycle.

The final contemporary topcoat provided the system with a watertight finish and excellent weather resistance and an attractive façade that fully met the councils aesthetic expectations.

“We were delighted to have our Stylite EWI boards specified on this high profile project. We worked closely with the EWI system designer to select the best product for the job and to provide all the technical advice that was needed. When it came to deliveries our transport department liaised with the EWI installer to ensure a constant supply of boards.”
