To raise awareness about the importance of retrofitting, Metro Mayor Dan Norris visited low-carbon retrofit specialists Hawkland Construction and tried his hand at plastering with Adaptavate’s Breathaplasta.
Retrofitting is the process of making alterations to an existing property to reduce energy consumption, and Breathaplasta Thermal is ideal for this, being a quick-setting, low-density plaster, proven to reduce damp and mould.
Hawkland and Adaptavate have been working closely for many years, sharing similar values which includes creating healthy, low-carbon spaces. During the visit Hawkland highlighted the technologies they are using on the property and the materials they’re using to reduce the energy consumption.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “I want to praise the brilliant employers we have in the West – those like Hawkland, who are ensuring warmer homes across our great region.”
Gary Martin, Business Growth Manager at Adaptavate attended the event and said: “Retrofitting is vital for meeting the UK’s net-zero targets, so it’s great to have our Mayor Dan Norris draw attention to this issue. Together with Hawkland, we’re making the change, one wall at a time.”
