Floating floors are particularly common in refurbishment works, and can be used to help improve the thermal or acoustic insulation of a floor construction. Building with Water: innovative approaches for sustainable architecture. Every year the river homes become locked into the ice in the Latsch Island Boathouse Community on the Mississippi River. Stern Review: The Economics of Climate Change [Online]. Once conducted, qualitative interview data can be analysed using an array of methods, including ‘linguistic analysis’ and ‘narrative analysis’, where themes may be predicted beforehand and links between the past and present take place. Multiple interviewees recognised that the quantity and delivery of social housing developments was insufficient and slow, particularly Person E (neighbouring land-based property resident) with 50% of their data related to the demand for social housing.
