Rowner Research Project - Factsheet 1 - Concept


The research project at Rowner investigated the design and delivery of 24 apartments, split equally over two blocks. The developments were part of Phase I of a multi-phased project, the Rowner Renewal project. The first Block (B) was built to comply with the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) level 3 energy requirements, and Block C was built to achieve the Fabric Energy Efficiency Standard (FEES) This project provided the Hub with the opportunity to investigate the implementation of the FEES in built flats. The Project was funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) as part of the Building Performance Evaluation programme (BPE), together with support from First Wessex, NHBC Foundation, LABC, Saint-Gobain, HCA and Taylor Wimpey.
