Follow-on voucher Retrofoam Testing Case Study

People Involved

Project Description

The purpose of this follow-on project is to conduct a suite of research and development testing on an innovative insulation product, focused around a live project. The insulation product, Retrofoam, used
extensively in the US refurbishment market, will be imported to the UK under an exclusive licence by MMB Developments Ltd. The product addresses a key'hard to treat' timber frame construction type within the UK that is otherwise cost prohibitive to upgrade. The aim of the project is to obtain key thermal and acoustic performance data from a live case study. This will assist in verifying product performance claims, opening access to refurbishment funding mechanisms, and providing a key case study feeding marketing strategies.
