Aberdeen tower block refurbishment programme completes
February 7 2014
The £3.6m project saw Steni cladding panels affixed by main contractor Lovell to the facades of Morven, Grampian and Brimmond Courts - each of which rises to 13 storeys in height.
The work should guarantee the properties remain structurally sound for a further 30 years and will contribute to lower heating bills for residents.
A council spokesman said: "Grampian, Brimmond and Morven Courts were built in the early 1970s when electricity was cheap and thermal insulation standards were poor and as the years passed these homes became very expensive to heat. We needed to upgrade them to increase their energy efficiency and help reduce residents' bills.
"The external walls are now three times better at retaining heat than they were prior to the works. We have also extended our award-winning district heating scheme, which is currently the most cost-effective means of heating high-rise blocks, to these courts."
