Change of use of existing structures often require physical changes to external fenestration to completely re-shape the structure into a form more suitable for its new use. Thermal performance criteria also need to change in line with the intended occupancy.
1. Changing the property's use
2. Poor insulation in walls
Due to increasing requirements for thermal insulation, buildings undergoing change of use may often require upgraded insulation in walls.
A decision needs to be made regarding the positioning of new insulation. Cavity sizes are restricted and internal insulation reduces the floor space available for use.
3. Heat loss through walkways and wing walls
Some features, especially those that puncture the facade e.g. wing walls and balcony walkways can provide thermal spikes and cold spots that are subject to condensation internally.
Condensation leads to other problems such as mould growth and musty odours in environments that are becoming more and more enclosed in order to reduce heating costs.
