We have won a second monitoring competition from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to monitor another of our buildings and we had the project start meeting with the TSB on 8th May. Last year we won funding to monitor 3 flats at Knights Place and at the beginning of this year we won further funding from the TSB to monitor another 3 flats at Rowan House. Both Knights Place and Rowan House are new build affordable housing projects in Exeter that are designed to meet Passivhaus Standards. The monitoring work is being undertaken under the TSB Building Performance Evaluation programme (BPE). The funding is for us to purchase and install a range of sophisticated monitoring equipment in the flats and then to monitor the performance of the building and the tenants’ use of the building over a period of 24 months. As results come in we will post then on our blog – keep an eye out, it should be interesting.
