Improvements At The IBTC

Tilia Properties is pleased to be working on a major refurbishment of the main boatshed at the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft. The college, which runs comprehensive boatbuilding and joinery courses attracting students from all over the world, was in need of a more heat retentive building to boost its energy efficiency.

The Tilia team started by removing all of the old cladding and various fixings and ensuring that the remaining was structure safe and secure, before the installation of new materials could commence.

We’ve now started to erect the new cladding, which is designed to significantly improve the thermal rating of the building by minimising heat loss. The addition of new, more energy efficient, windows and doors will further improve heat efficiency.

Our final task in this project will be to install new roller shutter doors at the front of the boatshed, resulting in a more practical, aesthetically pleasing building.

At Tilia we pride ourselves on maintaining and renovating all of our industrial units to meet current building standards to a high level. We’re sure the IBTC will enjoy the benefits of their new, improved boatshed.
