Low Carbon Homes – Ahead of Schedule

Private, national Irish volume housebuilder Cosgrove Homes are building to low carbon standards ahead of regulation – why is this, and what are the challenges?

Space Hus – 5 months on

If you came to the first low carbon event, you’ll remember the presentation about the Space Hus low carbon development in Blyth. The first tenants moved into their new homes in January 2015; find out what has happened now that the concept has become an occupied terrace.

The Centre for Refurbishment Excellence and Sustainable Homes will present on retrofitting existing housing stock, the other area where real carbon savings will come from. They’ll outline the scale and depth of the challenge, but will also look at how you can build your capability.
