Pre-retrofit Testing Report Created

The pre-retrofit, coheating report has been created by Leeds Beckett Univeristy (formally Leeds Metropolitan).

The pre-retrofit, coheating report from tests conducted on two of the no-fines properties has been created by Leeds Beckett University. These tests provide vital knowledge to our team about the pre-retrofit conditions of the buildings
and generate benchmarks for improvements. The main findings were of interest to our team, especially concerning the measured external wall U-values which were significantly different for the two properties with the same construction type.
U-values for floors were found to be similar between the properties and differences found in roof U-values can be attributed to differing levels of insulation. Find the full report here.
