September 1, 2012 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

The Nottingham and Milton Keynes AECB Local Groups have organised a site visit of a 1950’s home currently undergoing a Passivhaus EnerPHit retrofit.

On Saturday 1st September, from 10 am-12.30 pm, AECB members  have been invited by Kate Ball to visit her East-West facing detached house in Derby at 19 Thornhill Road, DE22 3LX – just off the A38 on the West side of Derby.

Retrofit measures include exceptional insulation, good airtightness, MVHR, water saving measures, a new boiler and solar PV.

RSVP to debbie@aecb.net so that we can let Kate know if you will be attending. Please note that this is a building site and visitors should recognise usual safety precautions.  In this regard, Children are welcome but parents are responsible for them at all times.

Some more information on the project . . . . .

The completed property will include a two extra bedrooms extension onto an 1980s single storey extension.  The retrofit includes insulation under floors, warm roof, external wall insulation (and some cavity wall insulation- the original construction may be of interest), Passivhaus suitable triple glazing, new boiler but some old radiators  retained, lots of water saving improvements, recycled solar PV and future proofing for solar DHW

…big fruit and vegetable plots, and ex-battery chickens!
