Kingspan’s Unidek SolarPower has proven highly useful and adaptable for new neighbourhoods like this. Its innovative combination of both insulation and energy generation in one product is convenient for construction workers and beneficial for homeowners.
Last year, contractor, Scholte op Reimer, was tasked with constructing six interconnected houses in the Bornsche Maten neighbourhood. The contractor aimed to create homes with an environmentally conscious edge to them.
Work began in earnest and quickly outgrew the original design plans. Originally, the plan was to use traditional roofing and insulation methods. But senior sustainability and energy-efficiency construction advisor with Nieman Consulting Advisors, Herm Valk, said it was difficult to get the different parts and systems to work together efficiently.
