CFCI grants have been awarded to Open Eco Homes for a number of years and we will hear about their work (through 2 case studies) in promoting low energy new build and retrofit homes in Cambridge.

Mark Brinkley, author of The Housebuilder’s Bible, will describe the challenges of creating a striking, self-build, low-energy home on a narrow Sedgwick Street site. Designed by Mole Architects the project is a 2018 Cambridge Design & Construction Awards winner.

James Smith and his family wanted to extend their conservation area, Victorian terraced home with a deep retrofit to make it fit for the future. With their architect, Margaret Reynolds, they won important planning concessions, resulting in a comfortable renewable-powered, low energy home.
