Deep Retrofit Transforms Wexford Sheltered Housing

Measure
The project retrofitted bedroom bungalows, involving social housing tenants on College View, Wexford town. These properties were first to benefit from the 50% grant aid through the SEAI’s Deep Retrofit Pilot scheme. All homes were constructed in the early 70’s and had pre-building BER ratings of F or G. All homes also had issues with inadequate ventilation and thermal bridging, resulting in mould growth on damp stains on the ceilings and internal wall surfaces.
