Dorville Hotel


Basic 1
Using our external wall insulation, we were able to transform a former hotel building close to WestonSuper-Mare seafront that had fallen into a state of disrepair.
In order to revamp the former Dorville Hotel building and its adjacent annexe, which had both become derelict, we used our external wall insulation to create a clean and contemporary thermally-efficient render finish.
The former hotel building was greatly detracting from the character and appearance of this conservation area due to its state of disrepair. The appointed main architect of the scheme was Ascent Architecture, who place sustainability and reduced energy usage as fundamental to their approach.
This project was a great chance to showcase the instant difference our high-quality insulation can make to a building.

The developer, Sustainable Britain Ltd, a division of the Connolly and Callaghan Group, wanted to specify an external wall insulation system that could guarantee thermal efficiency whilst also giving the whole building a complete facelift. This is why our Basic 1 wall insulation was chosen, along with expanded polystyrene insulation.
Not only is it the most cost-effective solution, but it is also proven technology that guarantees reliable protection and crack-resistance. It gives refurbishment and new build projects alike high levels of reinforcement. It also has excellent weathering characteristics and is available in a wide variety of finishes.
