Thermal Bypass
Thermal Bypass  
The impact of natural and forced convection upon building performance. There is mounting evidence to suggest that buildings that are being designed to achieve thermal performance standards, including the Building Regulations, are in fact consuming in excess of 40% more energy than the predicted values. In some cases the increase in energy consumption can be up to 70% greater than that predicted, says Mark Siddall.

Ian Hazel Funerals also offers eco-friendly caskets and woodland burials.
What happens after we die is often a rather environmentally unfriendly business; but one funeral home in particular is helping to ‘green’ death with solar power and other eco-friendly practices.

     Headline Quotes
New ecohome for disused quarry "I have taken the opportunity to turn a boring concrete-lined hole in the ground into an architectural form which tests boundaries in domestic architecture, will provide a focal point, and will encourage a debate about architecture.
Glenn Moore of Glenn Moore Associates

A framework for productivity in construction “Better buildings and infrastructure contribute to productivity not just through their primary function or by increasing economic output. By making people happier, safer and healthier, benefits which are often overlooked, the built environment encourages society to be more productive.”
Paul Nash Senior Vice President of the CIOB

Green building Heating “A third of all UK carbon emissions originate from heat, and just about half of all UK energy is used for heating. Yet only 4.9% of our heat infrastructure is currently renewable and low carbon"
James Court, Head of Policy and External Affairs at the Renewable Energy Association
