Rockwool group breathes life into 1960’s tower blocks
The Edward Woods Estate, a 1960’s social housing development consisting of three 24 storey blocks in Shepherds Bush,West Londonis to be refurbished rather than demolished and replaced.
Preliminary work started in October 2009 with the main project expected to be completed by Summer 2011.
The comprehensive refurbishment of the Edward Woods Estate is intended to extend the life of the towers as well as undertaking a thorough thermal and visual upgrade- the scheme also establishes a flagship for building-integrated renewable technologies within the borough. The project will see all three tower blocks given a combination of Rockwool, Rockshield and Rockpanel that will smarten up the estate and improve the buildings whilst lowering resident’s heating bills.
