The house is unique in that it is occupied by a registered co-operative group of 6 people, the purchase and refurbishment funded with a mortgage from Ecology Building Society, proving the viability of developing low energy house refurbishments for groups of people on a rental basis.

The eco-refit programme consisted of:

  • High performance insulation throughout the thermal envelope

  • Roof-integrated photovoltaic system

  • Central heating system with per-floor controls and solar thermal collector

  • Rainwater harvesting system for WC flushing

  • Sprinkler system for fire protection

  • Heat recovery ventilation in bathrooms and kitchen

  • Eco-friendly washing and drying machines

  • New decor, kitchen and bathrooms

The historic building fabric was treated sensitively when designing the refurbishment programme, and the needs of the housing co-op and its members were taken into account.
