Housing ‘eco-retrofit’ completes

13 June 2011: Gifford engineers have completed a comprehensive retrofit project in Harrow that will now be monitored to see how effectively the country’s existing housing stock can be converted into energy efficient homes to achieve deep cuts in carbon emissions.

The team designed a number of energy efficiency measures for the property, including super insulating the building envelope and sealing it to reduce heat loss, a ventilation system coupled with heat recovery, low energy lighting with specialist LED fittings, solar thermal panels, a room-by-room control system and a ‘last man out’ switch to stop appliances being left on stand-by.
