Low energy ‘smart house’ wins innovation award
we were delighted to win the 2015 Cardiff Innovation and Impact Awards with the team from Cardiff university’s Welsh School of Architecture with the development of the first low-cost energy positive house.
The house was built with high levels of thermal insulation reducing air leakage. It uses an innovative energy efficient design which includes low carbon cement, structural insulated panels (SIPS), external insulated render, transpired solar collectors and low emissivity double glazed aluminium clad timber frame windows and doors. The south facing roof incorporates glazed solar photovoltaic panels, fully integrated into the design of the building, allowing the roof space below to be lit naturally lit and removing the cost of bolt-on solar panels. Solar generation and battery storage power the combined heating, ventilation, hot water and electrical systems, which include appliances, LED lighting and heat pump.
