Key Services Provided

  • External Wall Insulation
  • Cavity Wall Insulation
  • Loft Insulation

The identification of fuel poverty in Dunfermline at an early stage meant that VolkerLaser were able to deliver the measures at zero cost to residents, thanks to HEEPS funding from the Scottish Government; providing long term savings to the residents of Dunfermline.

The experienced management team adhered to a strict programme of works, curtailing any potential downtime as a result of weather conditions by selecting materials and systems that could be applied in the rain.

A local satellite office and warehouse facility was set up to directly service this project. By having a warehouse storage facility close to the works, VolkerLaser were able to reduce downtime as materials were pre-ordered and securely stored, ready for use on site. A pre-vetted local supply chain was also utilised, which had the dual positive effect of boosting the local economy as well as minimising CO2 emissions produced.

The site also recieved a visit from the Scottish Minister for Housing and Welfare, Margaret Burgess, who commented that our works were making a huge difference upon families struggling to make ends meet.

Thanks to VolkerLaser’s efficient and effective delivery of this environmentally beneficial scheme, residents were able to enjoy warmer and cosier homes before the winter period, saving up to £400 per year on their heating bills.

“VolkerLaser are doing something to help us and make our homes nicer. They couldn’t have done enough for me – we all knew it was going to be a big job and not a piece of cake. The site managers have been great throughout the process and I often take a cup of tea out to the workers who are working hard to make our homes nicer and insulated.”
