In the video below, project manager Nick Martin talks us through the main fabric improvements that are going to be made to the properties.

Our aim is to incorporate HHP design principles in a retrofit, i.e. combining high thermal mass, passive solar gains and high levels of insulation to remove the need for a space heating system, and therefore significantly reduce running costs and emissions from the homes.

We will post further videos over the coming weeks looking at various aspects in more detail as we progress the retrofit work.  We hope you enjoy this summary, and please let us know what you think.
