Roadstone's Solution to TGD Part L

Organisation profile

The origins of Roadstone go back to the early 1930’s when two Dublin brothers Tom and Donal Roche started a sand and gravel haulage business operating from a small yard at Inchicore in West Dublin. Their company developed steadily during the 30’s and 40’s and a new company, Roadstone, launched in 1949. Roadstone now operate at over 40 locations nationwide providing high quality products such as blocks, concrete, mortars, grolime, asphalt, masonry, paving, and stonefill to the Irish market.

Training aim

Roadstone's Solution to TGD Part L provides guidance to engineers on TGD Part L and shows how cost savings and improved energy efficiencies can be made in the design and construction of new buildings.

Learning objectives

To give an overview of the benefits of Roadstone’s Thermal Liteblock

To discuss the requirements of TGD Part L and how to limit heat loss

To discuss the difference between U Values, thermal conductivity (Lambda λ), psi (ψ) and how psi (ψ) values are used to calculate the overall (y) factor for a building

To review example dwellings as outlined in TGD Part L and to examine case studies that illustrate how a more energy efficient building can be realised when a fabric first approach is taken
