It’s been a busy week for Cityzen as we gear up for the Eco Technology Show and sign off on the Green Deal Pioneer Places project.
Last week we celebrated at The Sallis Benney Theatre for the scheme’s documentary premier with project partners The Green Building Partnership, Brighton & Hove 10:10 and The Low Carbon Trust, as well as a host of other people, including keynote speaker – former Mayor Bill Randall.
Green Deal Pioneer Places is Brighton & Hove City Council’s Green Deal pilot scheme for the city, funded by DECC. Over the past few months, 100 Green Deal Assessments have been carried out throughout Brighton and Hove, with 10 local householders receiving up to £10,000 worth of energy efficiency improvements to their homes.
Cityzen were selected as the architectural design practice for six of these homes. We created specifications for each of the properties detailing the measures that would provide the best energy savings (based upon their Green Deal Assessment), with detailed architectural drawings. Measures included internal and external wall insulation, draught-proofing, switching out old boilers for new efficient condensing boilers with heat recovery, underfloor insulation and low-energy lighting.
We were delighted to be part of this important project.
The homes will be open as part of the Eco Open Houses weekends in June. If you haven’t been before then it’s a great chance to visit and be inspired by new or renovated local houses that demonstrate how to reduce your energy and water bills. Check the Eco Open Houses brochure for further details.
Finally, it’s just a week to go before the Eco Technology Show on the 14th& 15th June at The Brighton Centre. You’ll find Cityzen on stand A48 in the Build, Energy, Office & Home zone on the First Floor. Come and see what we’ve been working on lately and how Cityzen could do to improve your home or business. In addition, our very own Stuart Chapman has been asked to join the panel of experts on the Advisory Hub where you can meet with an expert advisor for a free advice session. For free entry to the show, register for tickets online using our code E132 before Wednesday 12th. Hope to see you there!
