St Paul’s Housing, energy efficient rainscreen cladding

Energy efficient rainscreen cladding forms the facade of these 23 affordable housing properties on a brownfield city site. St Paul’s Housing demonstrates ProWall rendered rainscreen cladding provides value and quality construction, with a durable finish provided by ProRend Colourtex render. The seven houses are of traditional construction and the sixteen flats of timber frame construction. The design achieved Level 3 Code for Sustainable Homes. The flats achieve high acoustic separation performance that exceed Building Regulations. The project incorporates renewable technologies including: rainwater recycling, solar thermal water heating, and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR).
