A show­case for greener liv­ing

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - House of the Fu­ture, Lower Rush­ton Road, Lais­ter­dyke, Brad­ford.

THIS re­cently-ren­o­vated ter­raced house is throw­ing its doors open for the Bri­tish Sci­ence Fes­ti­val in Brad­ford.

The prop­erty, which was ob­tained by Brad­ford Coun­cil through a com­pul­sory pur­chase or­der, will show­case the lat­est in sus­tain­able liv­ing tech­nol­ogy.

The aim is to show peo­ple how to make their homes more en­ergy ef­fi­cient.

An­thony Wadding­ton, pro­gramme man­ager of Brad­ford Cham­ber’s Be In­volved, a project aimed at link­ing busi­nesses in Brad­ford with lo­cal com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties, came up with the idea, which was spear­headed by Sal­taire-based ar­chi­tec­ture prac­tice Rance, Booth and Smith, closely sup­ported by sev­eral other lo­cal busi­nesses in­clud­ing Wat­son Batty Ar­chi­tects.

Prod­ucts and sys­tems on dis­play in­clude a high ef­fi­ciency con­dens­ing boiler, a heat re­cov­ery unit, low en­ergy LED light­ing, high per­for­mance win­dows, and a photo-voltaic panel ar­ray to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity.

The house will be open to vis­i­tors dur­ing the six days of the Sci­ence Fes­ti­val, from Satur­day, Septem­ber 10, to Thurs­day, Septem­ber 15, as well as two weeks af­ter.

HOUSE OF THE FU­TURE: Open as part of the Bri­tish Sci­ence Fes­ti­val.

POWER HOUSE: Win­dows from the Green Build­ing Com­pany, Hud­der­s­field, and photo voltaic panels are among the house’s fea­tures.
