Insulation and materials
Insulating your extension will significantly lower the amount of energy lost from the building envelope, reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. The problem with many extensions (especially single storey) is that they are built with a high surface to floor area ratio, giving larger areas exposed to the outside. Through careful thought we can minimise this, with compact and usable spaces. There are many types of insulation and we can help select the appropriate materials for your project, considering health, embodied energy, performance, durability and thickness.
