The solutions have been developed to offer superior thermal performance with a thinner profile, allowing valuable useable floor area to be maximised within the building footprint.
The comprehensive report looks at four external wall constructions. Two build-ups with different insulation specifications were compared for each, and the differential in both thickness and cost were taken into account in the analyses.
The first analysis draws on a database of over 7000 commercial buildings of different sizes and rental values across Great Britain.
The analysis demonstrates that whilst requiring a capital expenditure increase of between 0.1% and 1.89% for the overall developments, Kingspan Kooltherm wall insulation solutions can still provide a large ROI when installed instead of comparative insulation products.
In total, 92% of the buildings analysed showed a positive ROI, with 51% of buildings showing an ROI between 200% and 1,000%, and almost 1 in 5 displaying an ROI exceeding 1,000%.
Sweett Group also assessed ten case studies on which it has provided cost consulting services between February 2013 and February 2015.
The results of these case studies further supported the database findings. For example, an office located in the heat of London with a 3.5% yield and an annual rental income of £683.50/sq.m (£63.50/sq.ft) showed an ROI of 1,635%, whilst an office tower also in central London with a 4.5% yield and annual rental income of £554.30/sq.m (£51.50/sq.ft) shows an ROI of 1,324%.
The report, entitled ‘Real Value of Space in Commercial Real Estate’, was carried out by Sweett Group on behalf of Kingspan Insulation, and can be downloaded in full on the Kingspan Insulation website.
