The project partners are:
Beattie Passive is actively involved with a project for Social Housing in the Midlands using its innovative Retrofit solution TCosy™ which provides a fast, low cost and highly replicable solution for a wide range of buildings. The TCosy™ dramatically reduces energy requirements, creates a healthier living environment and can be delivered whilst residents remain in their home.
The project has a three stage approach:
Project Background: Work to date has largely involved Coventry University who have installed monitoring equipment for the acquisition and analysis of pre-retrofit data of tenants’ energy usage. Once Beattie Passive has completed the physical TCosy™ retrofit in mid-2015, the tenants’ energy usage will be re-assessed during the subsequent winter heating period.
The Jericho Foundation are a social enterprise that work with people who experience significant personal or occupational barriers to employment, training or social inclusion. Their aim is to provide these people with the skills and experience they need through a range of social enterprises. Jericho Construction are working with Beattie Passive to manufacture the timber frame for the Solihull Retrofit project, developing the skills and knowledge of the trainees.
“What every retrofit project needs is a low risk, whole building approach, capable of delivering superior thermal protection and air tightness, as well as fit for purpose heat recovery ventilation. Beattie Passive’s TCosy™ does all of this and more.”
