Once all of the internal surfaces to the external walls were stripped of existing plaster, a British Gypsum technical support representative from the Technical Academy offered theoretical and practical internal wall insulation training to all workmen at the estate who were carrying out the systems installation. Thorough training at the beginning of the project allowed for all work on the property to go ahead smoothly, and our British Gypsum technical support representative visited the site for follow-up inspections at regular intervals throughout the project in order to ensure that training and procedures were being used in the correct manner.
This not only ensured that our systems were being installed in line with regulations to deliver optimum results in reducing air leakage and thermal bridging around openings, but also helped workmen on the project to feel confident about the work that they were carrying out, and the new skillset that they had learned.
Regular visits from the British Gypsum technical support representative also helped the workmen to find out how to overcome any problems correctly and in good time, preventing any delays in the renovation schedule, as noted by Brian Thompson: “We found that the instructor had a great depth of knowledge to allow him to advise on any problems we encountered allowing the project to run smoothly.”
The renovation at Ford and Etal Estate emphasises the flexibility of using British Gypsum internal wall insulation systems and the support offered with British Gypsum training courses.
