Client: B&Q, Project: Loft Insulation

The brief:
The amount of loft insulation required by UK law is increasing. Design an easy-to-install system which allows the increase of loft insulation in UK homes without compromising storage space.

The design:
Working from initial sketches, the concept of effectively raising existing loft beams was generated. This idea was developed through the use of CAD and small, basic models to ensure the design stacked efficiently, fitted together seamlessly and could be manufactured at scale.

The prototype:
Using cardboard, I constructed a full-size working prototype to test fitment through loft openings, joining together of units and real-world practicality.

The final design significantly exceeded the current 270mm loft insulation depth requirement, whilst being easy to install, cheap to produce and easy to transport.
