The eco-house made from Brighton's rubbish
There is no such thing as waste… just things in the wrong place!
EJOT UK supplied a variety of fastenings to Brighton’s Faculty of Arts ‘Waste House’ Project - including specialist fixings for external wall & roof insulation - and for the project’s photovoltaic solar panels. Architectural Researcher at the University of Brighton’s Faculty of Arts, Duncan Baker-Brown, has been leading the project which will create a sustainable studio at the Grand Parade Campus.
The Waste House was inspired by a collaboration between Baker-Brown and TV celebrity Kevin McCloud during an earlier series of 'Grand Designs'. The aim was to create the UK’s first low-energy prefabricated house using purely eco-friendly materials. ‘The House that Kevin Built’ as it became known, proved to be the prototype and the Brighton Waste House has allowed students to create new methods of sustainable construction using locally sourced waste materials.
In the UK, some 45% of CO2 emissions come from architectural structures so finding ways to build sustainably is a social responsibility. The project aims to exceed EU targets for a 30% reduction in emissions.
Insulation in the walls and to the roof structure include materials like tyres, inner-tubes – even toothbrushes – hence the request to EJOT was to trial a variety of fixings that would achieve the necessary pull-out strengths from unconventional substrates. In the end it was a combination of EJOT’s SW8R fastener and SBHT washer that provided the solution on the walls, with the TKR fastener securing plywood boards and insulation in the roof area.
Steve Bailey carried out the on-site pull-out testing:
"The Waste House is the most fascinating project I’ve conducted testing at, but the way that the variety of materials were put to use has been meticulously planned."I was working with 100% reclaimed plywood and the vapour membrane consisted of used advertising hoarding sheets. By design, this material is light and weather resistant, just like its conventional equivalent. Our SW8R is a carbon steel fastener that is organically coated for corrosion resistance. It is specifically made to fix insulation to a variety of substrates and it proved ideal. Equally, the SBHT washer works with a variety of fasteners – and ironically it carries EJOT UK’s ‘Made in Yorkshire’ stamp as it is in itself, a product of our own zero-waste material production process. The TKR offers exactly the same advantages from a countersunk headed fastener".
EJOT UK gains full member status of the Construction Fixings Association
Safety Critical Fixings.
What happens when it goes wrong?
As one of only six manufacturers to be accepted as full members of the Construction Fixings Association, EJOT UK is helping to promote the work of the CFA by alerting those involved in the specification and installation of safety critical fixings, to the serious consequences of "getting it wrong".
The reality is that in such scenarios, life and limb are the potential casualties when either the correct specification or installation process fails. The selection, installation and certification of construction fixings on any construction project is comparatively small in terms of time and resource, when taking the overall project into consideration.
Yet we constantly see the consequences of wrongly specified fixings and mistakes that have presented a serious threat to life. It is vital that the correct anchoring system is chosen and that it is installed to the manufacturers recommendations; that includes drilling and preparation of the installation hole through to insertion and setting of the anchor.
Established in 1979, the CFA is non-profit making industry-wide body. Its work in actively promoting best practice guidance through a range of resources, makes it the leading authority on construction fixings in the UK. The CFA has been instrumental in the development and publishing of BS8539 – a British Standard Code of Practice designed to assist the specification to installation chain, with a thoroughly comprehensive guide to the roles and responsibilities in providing a high quality and safe fixing installation.
Brian Mack is technical business development manager for EJOT in the UK: “As a trade association, the CFA is providing education, advice, training and technical support to all functions involved in the provision of safety critical fixings in the industry. Here at EJOT UK, we are delighted to be involved with this process”.
