Event Details

How can innovative thinking around zero carbon housing lead  towards a future of affordable, sustainable and attractive homes that promote energy efficient lifestyles?
The BASF House at Nottingham Creative Energy Homes
Nottingham University’s Creative Energy Homes project demonstrates how homes of the future could evolve. This special Green Construction Board-backed breakfast seminar will outline the project’s progress on the route to zero carbon design and help you to understand how you can take advantage of the lessons being learnt.

With recent changes to building regulations pressing the industry even harder towards the construction of zero carbon homes, the Creative Energy Homes Project provide valuable insights into some of the challenges industry face and the solutions available to tackle it.

Five years ago, seven homes were constructed in the University Park Campus, each designed and built to test how energy efficiency housing can be achieved and to show benefits that technology could offer home owners.

Join us on 3rd July, to step inside these homes...

  • 09:30 - Tour of BASF House and Creative Homes Projects

A short seminar on the project will be followed by a tour of the properties and, in particular, a look at the BASF House which demonstrates that housing designed to be more energy efficient uses less energy, saves money and helps protect the environment. 

Each property has been fully instrumented and will be monitored to determine performance and to understand where future low carbon wins will most likely come from. By utilising a range of different low carbon innovations, the project allows different aspects of modern methods of construction and sustainable/renewable energy technologies to be assessed.

Green Construction Board

The Green Construction Board (GCB) was established in October 2011 as a consultative forum for government and the UK design, construction, property and infrastructure industry. It was established to ensure a sustained high-level conversation and to develop and implement a long-term strategic framework for the promotion of innovation and sustainable growth in this sector. In the shorter term, its key priority is to provide improved focus, direction and clarity to the business and growth opportunities which are being created by the shift to a green economy.
