In Sittard everyone is currently hard at work to complete the apartment complex Molenbeek. Completion has been scheduled for July 2014. The new construction project consists of 80 apartments and a number of shops on the ground floor. What makes the project so unique is the absence of traditional masonry. The facades will be cladded using the E-Board system. This system consists of a 26 cm thick insulation layer covered with brick slips.
The application of a panel system on a building of this size is quite unique. For this reason, on Thursday 24 April, a number of architects and housing corporations went to visit the project in Sittard. During the visit the focus was on knowledge transfer: “How can we build more cost-efficiently and immediately benefit from high insulation values.” The project enables people to view all the installation phases of E-Board. Positioning the insulation panels, covering them with brick slips and the final result with E-Board.
This construction method is extremely suitable for new constructions, and also very suitable for renovation projects. More and more properties no longer meet the applicable insulation standards and as a result very soon a modernization program is put in place. During the insulation and modernization work, it is important to keep the nuisance to residents to a minimum. The huge advantage of E-Board is that people do not need to leave their house during the renovation work. The use of E-Board guarantees a well-insulated property and a brand new, qualitative facade.
