The Challenge

Addressing a mid-terrace house in Dublin dating back to the 1970s posed a unique set of challenges. One such challenge was effectively tackling an extension at the rear of the house added in the early 2000s that lacked proper roof and wall insulation. This significantly contributed to the property’s low BER of D2 (Building Energy Rating), necessitating an extensive retrofit including: wall insulation, roof insulation, heat pump, as well as solar panels and more.

Our Process

Home Energy Assessment

The first step in this project was to assist the homeowner with a Home Energy Assessment. This provided the homeowner and our team with a roadmap for the required retrofit upgrades. We were then able to carry out a thorough assessment of the property, identifying critical areas needing attention, and crafting a comprehensive retrofit project plan.

Updating the homeowner regularly was important to the successful delivery of this project. We arranged frequent calls and visits as necessary, making sure their preferences and concerns were integrated into our plans. Our project manager kept the homeowner informed of progress, milestones, and any modifications made, ensuring their involvement and confidence throughout.

Detailed Planning

Our project management team developed a detailed roadmap, outlining each phase and task intricately to ensure a streamlined and efficient execution of the retrofit, and agreed the plan with the homeowner.

The Outcome

The successful completion of this project is a transformed property in Dublin, with significantly improved energy efficiency and comfort levels. SEAI One Stop Shop grants of €22,550 were claimed towards the retrofit. This project resulted in an improvement of a D2 to A1 BER.
