HHP is improving the energy efficiency of a pair of semi-detached houses on the Hawtonville estate, in Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire.

The retrofit is a partnership project between Hockerton Housing Project (HHP), consultants and lead contractors, and Newark and Sherwood Homes (NSH) the Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) for Newark and Sherwood District Council, and the social landlord for the properties.

The retrofit project is being funded under the Technology Strategy Board’s Retrofit for the Future Competition, aimed at finding innovative ways to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of existing housing.

Here are the two houses we’ll be retrofitting, aiming to deliver an 80% + reduction in CO2 emissions, along with visualisations of what they will look like when complete.

More details of how we’re going to do it, and regular progress updates will be posted here, so sign up to follow our progress.
