Norfolk, UK – Recticel’s PIR insulation has been used in a Passive House project in the East of England.
The firm’s Eurothane GP insulation was used throughout the dwelling under an oak floor and porcelain tile combination and 22cm chipboard deck with a vapour control layer.
Architect Chris Parsons said the Eurothane GP was specified because it was "cost effective insulation." He added: "Passivhaus requires high levels of insulation and the avoidance of thermal bridging which the Recticel product helped to achieve."
Lime Tree Lodge features 40m2 of two layers of 150mm thick Eurothane GP.
Recticel's premium Eurothane GP insulation was specified for the floors of Lime Tree Lodge in Swaffham, Norfolk, by the town's Parsons + Whittley Architects. It was installed by Norfolk contractors Grocott & Murfit.
Grocott & Murfit director Jody Murfit said: "The project generally was quite challenging due to the curve but the Recticel insulation was easy to install. We just cut it to size, doubled it up and taped it."
Lime Tree Lodge was shortlisted for the Passivhaus Trust Awards 2016.
