Lincoln Grove, Bladon – LowCarb4Real

Lincoln Grove is a development of 9 x 2 and 3 bed homes near Woodstock, 9 miles from Oxford, constructed in 2007. The homes were awarded EcoHomes excellent, scoring 77 credits, the same as BedZED. The homes have been subsequently re-assessed under the Code for Sustainable Homes and achieved level 3.

Preventing Overheating – GHA Research Project funded by DECC

High temperatures in homes are known to cause real problems for occupants. These range from discomfort and mild health effects, to serious health effects. Elderly people and other vulnerable groups are most at risk from these effects, and with an aging population, greater urbanisation and climate change predicted, the risk of overheating needs to be addressed.

This study aims to identify the factors present with known cases of overheating in England, to build a picture of the problem and to highlight the types of dwellings that could be at risk. It also investigates some of the solutions presently used to avoid and tackle overheating.

Phase 2 Summary and Recommendations – GHA Monitoring Programme funded by DCLG, EST, NHBC Foundation

This document focuses on the key results of the Phase 2 Post-Occupation Evaluation and compares the findings of the in-use performance data from the houses in terms of energy and water consumption and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), the performance of installed building services, and occupant behaviour/ perceptions.

Old Apple Store, Stawell – Phase 2, GHA Monitoring Programme

The project is part of a larger brief to examine the as-built performance of a new-build energy efficient house (co-heating test, reported elsewhere) followed up by building performance monitoring of the occupied house using sensors combined with post occupancy evaluation (POE) questionnaires. This report details the findings from the monitoring and POE, and aims to extract enhanced meaning from each as a
consequence of the two programmes running in parallel.

Camden Passivhaus – GHA BPE Study funded by TSB

This evaluation was conducted under the Technology Strategy Board’s Building Performance Evaluation programme. To determine the effectiveness of the design and delivery strategy in Camden Passivhaus, real fabric performance indicators were tested to compare these results with anticipated performance.
