The UK's construction industry produces approximately 100,000,000 tonnes of waste each year.
We have to change that.
We need to show that the new technology works, as no-one has to date put Passivhaus style insulation into a shipping container (confirmed by the Passivhaus Institute).
We also need to fine-tune the MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) pump, solar panels and appliances & fittings.
Currently we have generated a massive 90kW since Jan 28th - meaning the house is paying for itself and exporting energy to the South Yorkshire Energy Centre too.
Container homes are still a rarity in the Uk. There are a few, of which probably the best known are at Container City opposite the O2 Arena in London's Docklands and BoxPark in Croyden. Other examples are Richardson's Yard in Brighton and Raynes Court in Stoke Newington, where flats are on the market for up to £620,000 - so when asked if there is a resale value that's the example we always quote!
