Lightweight helped Ichijo Create 7 Star Energy Saving Homes
Ichijo had specific requirements regarding the dimensions needed, and in particular sought a thicker wall than was standard with Hebel in order to achieve a higher energy efficient rating. As lightweight construction specialists Empower was able to customise a system of installation, and have it approved by CSR – the manufacturer of Hebel. The system devised means that the battens used are of a thicker gauge, allowing Ichijo to achieve the desired wall thickness without voiding the manufacturer’s warranty.
Ichijo also wanted to create a larger window reveal to accommodate shutters or window furnishings. Empower Construction’s method of installing the Hebel panels was able to meet this requirement, plus they were able to provide an end-to-end solution including the supply of Hebel PowerPanels, along with installation, rendering and painting services
“We’re really pleased with the high level of interest in the homes,” said Mr Willis. “This is translating into strong sales for these designs.”
