Eco Houses Under Construction - First Event

The first in the series of at least 8 free events will be held on Zero Carbon Britain Day:

Saturday 16th July, 12.30pm
West Bridgford, Nottingham
Talk by Steve Day, Fabric Architects

Steve is in charge of the eco-refurbishment design and will give an overview of the key aspects of this ultra-low energy refurbishment. His talk will include the “fabric first” approach and an introduction to the kind of work needed to achieve or move towards Passive House standard. From 1.30pm onwards there will be the opportunity to visit the house in its “pre-refurbishment” state for those who wish to do so. To reserve your place(s) and to receive details of the venue, email

The second event will be held the following weekend when architect Mike Siebert of Ecologic Homes Ltd. will talk about achieving a low cost, high code new build using timber frame. The frame arrives in early July and should be up by the date of the event! To receive full details of this or any future event, email
