Cover story: - Renovating and retrofitting an existing property is challenging for so many reasons. When you add the requirement for airtightness to this it throws up a whole new bunch of challenges and expectations, many of which builders are still to learn how best to approach.

     Headline Quotes
Leeds Co-housing project sneak preview “We are delighted to be constructing this very exciting housing project - the first time in the UK that a complete housing development has been constructed using the Modcell prefabricated panels with strawbales to provide insulation. We are committed to improving the environment so a pioneering housing scheme like this, designed to encourage living as ‘lightly’ on earth as possible whilst addressing the need for affordable housing, is a great project to be part of" -
Simon Gregory, Lindum Construction

“I am staggered that the Minister chose to promote a conglomerate like Tesco at a time when the jobs of tens of thousands of workers at independent solar installers are either being axed or are in serious jeopardy. Mr Barker went on to say that he is forecasting over a million new installations by 2015 compared to the previous Labour Government target of 250,000, but he is living in a fantasy world if he really believes such a figure has any kind of foundation.” -
David Hunt commenting on Energy Minister Greg Barker's comments on declining PV installations

Recycling water can increase carbon emissions “While grey water recycling and rainwater harvesting systems can reduce domestic water consumption, they can also lead to increased energy use and carbon emissions. New homes built to current building regulations already deliver a much better level of water efficiency than existing homes. Therefore, from an overall perspective of saving water in a simple and affordable way, installing water meters in more existing homes would have a far greater impact on reducing overall consumption without these unintended consequences than additional measures in the relatively small number of new homes.” -
Neil Smith, Group Research and Innovation Manager, NHBC, responding to remarks by Caroline Spelman about domestic water recycling
