16 storey Riverbank Tower in Greengate, Salford and neighbouring block, Newbank Tower, have just undergone a major refurbishment. The towers, owned and maintained by award-winning housing provider Salix Homes, were upgraded by the installation of Alumasc's Swisslab External Wall Insulation (EWI) system. 3000m2 of Swisslab EWI was installed, comprising 60mm Phenolic Insulation and a combination of two high performance external finishes. Traditional clay brick slips were installed on the lower floors - chosen for their high levels of impact resistance - and silicone render to the remaining storeys, specified due to its lightweight properties which minimise the structural impact of the system.
