Sustainable Housing Project (SHAP)
Improving the environmental performance of buildings is one of the key challenges for the region.
Improving the environmental performance of buildings is one of the key challenges for the region. This project, run by Sustainability West Midlands, demonstrated the life-cycle costs and performance of different sustainable housing technologies to developers, housing associations and construction companies.
The work followed up previous SHAP projects to bring the research up-to-date, to compare construction costs and life-cycle costs for sustainable housing against conventional housing and to identify opportunities for developing the supply chain for sustainable technologies.
Science City funding of £45k was matched with £50k of public sector funding (through Energy West Midlands and the Energy Savings Trust) and £10k of private sector in-kind contribution.
