Overview

Using aircrete, a certified modern method of construction, main contractor B.W Bellis was able to complete the blockwork on a large six-bedroom self-build property in Wales within six weeks. Apart from some technical assistance from H+H on working with aircrete, all of the blockwork was laid by a single worker during this time.

Product supplied

Main contractor, Barry Bellis had used H+H Celcon Blocks when building his own home in 2010 and was impressed with the thermal performance so recommended the use of aircrete to the client for this build.

H+H Celcon 140mm Jumbo Bloks were used on the inner leaf cavity walls of the property.

Testimonials

Main contractor

“I used Celcon Blocks for my own five-bedroom home, almost seven years ago. I thought the insulation benefits would be better than alternative building materials available if I used aircrete. The results have been astonishing. My annual energy bill was less than £200 last year! I do have solar panels as well, but it is the aircrete that creates the great efficiency which has led to the savings. A member of staff from H+H visited the site and showed us the best way of laying the aircrete, and how to cut it to the right size. With that knowledge, we had what we needed to get on with the job.”
– Barry Bellis

Client

“When Barry came to us with proposals to use aircrete blocks, he spoke of the huge gains in build speed as well as the thermal efficiency benefits that could be achieved. Seeing how he’d used the blocks for his own property we took this to be a mark of their quality. The blocks are good quality and quick to install. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.”
