    Buda, Gerard; Taylor, Bruce J.; Bennadji, Amar (Henry Stewart Publications., 2013)
    BUDA, G., TAYLOR, B. and BENNADJI, A., 2013. The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies. Journal of Building Survey, Appraisal & Valuation, 2 (1), pp. 36-43.
    Traditional buildings constructed of solid granite walling that have timber framing with lath and plaster internal finish are not thermally efficient when compared with modern constructions. They are also termed ‘hard-to-treat’ ...
