The project included ground source heat pumps for heat and hot water, PV micro generation and battery storage, off site insulated façades, triple glazing, MVHR, underfloor insulation by robots and a sophisticated IoT monitoring platform.


This was an R&D project developing much of the technology used, in some cases for the first time in the UK. Deep retrofit of existing properties with residents insitu and the rectification of existing defects prior to commencement of the energy improvement works.
