We have now completed the retrofit of the houses, and hopefully you’ll agree they’re looking great.
The existing tenants of number 30, Mr & Mrs Morton, have already moved back in and are enjoying their new home. Newark and Sherwood Homes are advertising for tenants for number 28, which was previously void.
The houses will now be monitored for 2 years to see how they really perform. The monitoring includes:
- Temperature and relative humidity in 3 rooms of the house (sitting room, bedroom 1 & bedroom 2)
- External temperature
- CO2 level in the sitting room
- Total water and electricity consumption
- Electricity consumption on 8 individual sub-circuits
All this data is being monitored automatically and transmitted to a central database at 5 minute intervals, and we can view it real-time via a website.
We are also hoping to do additional monitoring on the properties, and are in discussion with a couple of universities about the possibiliity of collaborating on this.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our blog so far, and watch this space for more news of post occupancy evaluation …
