A showcase for greener living
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.
