Natural Building Technologies, a specialist in ecologically sound building products and systems, has gained LANTAC approval on a range of its new build and renovation wall and roofing systems.
The approvals have been assessed and authorised by Birmingham City Council’s building consultancy and cover NBT’s Diffutherm system, NBT’s Timber and Brick Clad timber frame systems and NBT’s Isolair and Pavatherm Plus roofing system. It also includes the use of cellulose and flax insulation, as well as Beeckosil silicate paint and Bayosan render systems all of which are available through NBT.
LANTAC offers significant time and cost benefits for clients commissioning new projects. LANTAC certification speed’s up the approval process and ensures that design work can progress more rapidly. The involvement of local authority building control is a client's guarantee of a service which is publicly accountable, with independent plan checking and site inspection.
NBT Systems are based on a modern scientific understanding of building technology, physics and biology. They are extensively tested and approved and feature robust detailing in all vulnerable areas of the building. Some of the individual systems and products have been in use on the continent for many years, and are well established and proven construction methods. NBT Systems offer many practical advantages over the traditional construction methods generally used in the UK and Ireland, particularly since the introduction of more demanding building regulations.
It is increasingly important that new building and renovation work provide long lasting and healthy environments. NBT Systems provide a cost effective, proven and certified solution to satisfy these demands.
