Our work is defined by the very specific within the wider context of sustainability; the principle is to minimise a building’s energy use while maximising its spatial potential.

We advise on and can become involved with projects from concept to completion. Our experience is hands-on as well as design based and we make good relationships with both client and contractor.

GreenScapes provides design  expertise for the creation of sustainable
gardens. We specialise in the design of rainwater management systems and gardens with low water use, and use plants  to help conserve heat in the house in winter and reduce overheating in summer. 

Biodiversity is also a priority, and we encourage the use of indigenous plants, and natural methods of pest and disease control, to create wildlife-friendly  environments. For hard landscaping projects we choose our materials with care to  minimise the ecological footprint, and promote the use of recycled aggregates, rammed earth, dry stone walling and lime mortar.

Insulation Solid Wall properties

There is an increasing focus on carbon emission reduction and the initiatives to tackle the more difficult energy-inefficient properties and reduce heating bills.  Solid wall homes with brick, stone or concrete walls are generally energy efficient, having much lower SAP ratings than corresponding cavity constructed properties.  An unfilled cavity wall loses approximately 35% of heat through the wall, however, if you live in a home with solid walls, you are losing a staggering 45-50%. 

In the UK today there are approximately 24.5 million dwellings, 36% are solid wall construction, a total of some 8.8 million homes.  In addition to heat loss, there are additional problems of risks to health from cold.  They are more prone to condensation and black mould, hence solid wall properties have become known as “Hard to Heat Homes”.  However, there is now an economical solution available which is a fraction of the cost of any other type of insulation and can be installed on a DIY basis.

SEMPATAP THERMAL is thermal insulation on a roll, as easy as wallpaper to apply which dramatically reduces heat loss through cold walls and ceilings.

SEMPATAP THERMAL is approved by The Energy Saving Trust as an energy saving product and is also an EST “Recommended” product for the insulation of solid wall homes.

SEMPATAP THERMAL can be applied very quickly with hardly any mess and it does not necessitate vacating the property.  It can be decorated with virtually any finish – emulsion, wallpaper, even tiles and has a life expectancy of 30 years.   The benefits are immediate warmth and comfort, reduced risk of ill health and lower fuel bills.

SEMPATAP THERMAL can be applied to all types of solid wall properties and there is also a variety for floors, it is applied in the following way.
Firstly, prepare the walls to be insulated – if there is black mould growing on the walls and ceilings this must be treated strictly in accordance with MGC’s  specification for the eradication of mould growth.

Apply Sempatap Adhesive, which is low odour and water-based, by roller, brush or notched trowel to ceiling/wall surface.  Only apply the adhesive to one drop length area at a time.  For subsequent lengths apply the adhesive not only to the wall/ceiling area but also to the edge of the previously hung length of the Sempatap.

Apply foam side to the wall.  Roll up the cut length with the foam side facing out.  Apply the insulation to the wet adhesive at the top of the wall or at the junction of the ceiling and wall.  Smooth out with light level hand pressure.  When in required position, apply firm hand pressure and using Sempatap Spatula smooth out any air pockets.
