Solent energy efficiency project to cut home energy use

The University of Southampton is part of an innovative £10m project, which has just received major funding to help reduce energy use in the home.

Southern Electric Power Distribution SEPDs ‘Solent Achieving Value from Efficiency’ project has been successful in securing £8.3m of funding from Ofgem’s Low Carbon Network Fund, bringing the project’s total value to £10.3m.

The Solent-based project, led by SEPD and with partners at the University of Southampton, DNV GL and Maingate Wireless, will focus on local domestic customers, who will be offered new energy efficiency technology to trial in their homes and will be offered incentives for making long-term changes to their energy usage behaviour.

Barratt Set to Launch New Homes in Verwood

Buyers in the popular village of Verwood can now take their pick from an exciting new selection of one and two bedroom apartments - thanks to the launch of Fairwood Place on Saturday 9 February.

The Barratt development, in Peel Close, offers buyers the style and quality which has earned Barratt its status as a five star housebuilder for the last three years.

"Fairwood Place features a range of beautifully-designed homes - offering buyers in the region top quality apartment living," said Barratt sales director, Michelle Storer.


Granite Transformations’ Finishes Feature At Sarah Beeny’s!

The Italian granite, quartz and recycled glass agglomerate surfaces produced exclusively by Granite Transformations are usually associated with kitchen worktops. But for the TV property series, Beeny's Restoration Nightmare, the material was used in a quite different way, for cladding walls and bath surrounds in the bridal room's en suite facilities, two dramatic shower rooms and a particularly flamboyant 'Dream Green' bathroom. Emphasising its versatility as an interior finish, it also features as matching 300mm square floor tiles in all five completed rooms.

Far from being part of the 'restoration nightmare', which relates to the challenges of renovating a decaying 97-room mansion in East Yorkshire, Granite Transformations' contribution to the project went very smoothly, prompting Sarah Beeny to comment 'We found them brilliant'.
