Boswell homes were introduced in the 1920s.

These homes were built with in-situ concrete panels. Boswell properties are designated ”defective” by the Building Research  Establishment (BRE).

The characteristics of a Boswell home include:-

  • 2-storey semi-detached and terraced houses.

  • Cracking of render.
  • Reinforcement corrosion in PRC corner columns.
  • Friable concrete below DPC level.
  • Lack of tying between flank and internal walls.

Our Approach

With any project, the first step is always a structural survey – especially with a designated defective property.

Once this has been carried out, our technical team are in the perfect position to advise on the right system for the project.

With our Daneville Estate project, Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) worked with us deliver a Structherm SEWI refurbishment scheme.

The system being installed with a high performance acrylic render finish, with light blue render, and dark grey brick effect contrast panels. This ensured the properties are aesthetically pleasing and of a modern appearance.
