Flockton, West Yorkshire
H+H Celcon Blocks were specified in Brian Green’s self-build project. His property was constructed with the aim of being as thermally efficient as possible. Special attention was paid to detailing of the insulation, thermal bridging and envelope penetrations. Due to planning constraints, the build had to be sensitive to existing adjacent residential properties which are 200-400 years old.
Brian’s self-build project is constructed on a split-level, narrow site which meant due care and consideration had to be taken on the products used and how they would be delivered.
H+H Jumbo Bloks Standard Grade were constructed on top of 65mm Marmox Thermoblocks with regular ongoing support from an H+H representative who was able to advise on the best way to work with the product. The inner leaf was constructed, insulation glued on and wall ties hammered in where appropriate. This whole process was expediated by using the Thin-Joint system: as H+H Celfix mortar sets incredibly quickly, with an initial set of 10 to 15 mins and full strength achieved within one to two hours, Brian was able to benefit from significantly improved build speed in comparison to the traditional forms of masonry he initially considered.
