What is your main role in the project?
Coordination of the Pre-start process. Technical support for Operations team during build phase.

What are you looking forward to?
Seeing the finished product and how closely it resembles a ‘standard’ product.

What are you most nervous about throughout the project?
Bad press.

Why do you think this project is valuable?
Two reasons. I hope it will demonstrate that a code 6 template can be created for reproduction on a larger scale in future and that not all so called ‘Ecohouses’ need to be bespoke and futuristic.

What do you think you’ll learn by being involved?
I have, and will, learn far too much to list here.

Fact 2

Research by Currie and Brown on commercial buildings show that, over a 30-year period, concrete structures are more efficient than steel because they require less energy to heat and cool.  For more benefits see Why Masonry?
