The Good Homes Alliance and British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) are seeking experts to deliver a new shading guide and case studies. The guide follows on from popular industry guidance developed by GHA on minimising and mitigating overheating risk in homes.

Feedback from within the GHA membership (which include consultants, architects & specifiers, local authorities, housing associations and private developers) was that guidance on how to effectively use shading devices to reduce overheating risk, as well as positively impact other health & wellbeing/occupant comfort and building performance benefits, would be extremely well received.
