Nottingham ecohouses visit

10 October 2012: The West Bridgford Ecohouse group were invited to take a tour of the Creative Energy Homes on the campus of the University of Nottingham. There's a group of five of them, demonstrating different technologies. Some are lived in by postgrad students or staff.

Tina asks a question about the BASF house. Many thanks to the kind PhD student who showed us round the buildings. The house has a large south facing winter garden, with solar shading to prevent over heating. The ground floor is built with concrete filled foam blocks and the upper floor walls and roof are SIPS panels, structural insulated panels.
