Case studies

Sea King Helicopter

  • Spray foam used: WALLTITE®
  • Location: Mains Farm Wigwams, Central Scotland
  • Completion date: 31st October 2016

The Sea King Project, which was featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Space on Channel 4, arose when the owners of Mains Farm Wigwams decided to add a novelty twist to their camping and glamping park, in form of an old naval helicopter. After snapping one up at auction, they completely stripped it out and transformed the inside into a snug and quirky self-contained accommodation for a family of five. Visitors to this beautiful spot on the edge of the Trossachs National Park can now lodge in the refurbished Sea King. Undoubtedly Scotland’s most unusual place to stay!

Cashel Farm

  • Spray foam used: WALLTITE®
  • Location: Cork, Ireland

Project designers, Edge Architecture, wanted all of the building to follow the design principles of Passivhaus standards. This requires not only extremely efficient thermal insulation but also the highest airtightness standard.

The old barn building had solid stone walls: to get the required U-value of 0.26W/m2 K a 75mm layer of WALLTITE was sprayed directly onto the interior wall surface, forming a seamless finish that is not only thermally efficient but is also both airtight and watertight. The WALLTITE layer was then covered with plasterboard for the interior finish.

The new building structures, on the other hand, were constructed of two leaves of concrete blocks with a 200mm cavity held with insulating wall ties. This cavity was filled with WALLTITE CV 100 injection grade – a variation of the spray foam product that is designed to be injected into cavity walls. The result was a U-value of 0.12W/m2 K.

Basement soffit insulation

  • Spray foam used: ELASTOSPRAY LWP®
  • Location: Cambridge Terrace, Regents Park, London
  • Completion date: 31st December 2016

Cambridge Terrace is a row of Grade 1 Listed Regency homes, designed in the early 19th century by John Nash, the architect of Buckingham Palace.

The developer aims to convert the properties into a “super mansion” complete with a large underground leisure complex comprising of a pool, bar, cinema, jacuzzi and a car lift from street level to the basement car park.

When completed, the new development is expected to be worth £200 million.
