A flagship refurbishment project which has been part funded by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, showcases some of the latest retrofit solutions that BRE and its partners have been working on in advance of the Green Deal. It was visited by Greg Barker the DECC minister.
The solid wall building, originally constructed in 1855, has been transformed into a number of energy efficient terraced housing units that demonstrate the latest processes, materials and technological advances in sustainable refurbishment.
The Minister met with representatives from partners British Gas, Saint Gobain and BASF and heard about the intensive trialling and testing programme being carried out on the homes and the range of sustainable products, materials and systems they incorporate.
The resulting information will be used to help homeowners make informed decisions on improvements to their homes as the Green Deal comes into play.
