Construction to start on Natural House



Construction to start on Natural House
Building work on a low carbon home is set to begin next week which will aim to demonstrate how properties can be built in a green and sustainable way.

Named the Natural House, the project will see the home built from materials donated by the architectural charity the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment.

The property will be erected on at BRE Innovation Park in Watford and demonstrate how high quality, low carbon homes can be built quickly.

Hank Dittmar, chief executive of the Prince's Foundation said: "Climate change is forcing us to radically re-think our built environment.

"It is vital that we find a simple, high volume, low carbon approach to house building, creating a new eco-vernacular that people will love and enjoy for hundreds, not tens of years.

"We tend to assume that that low carbon must mean high-tech, but that's not the only option."

He added that low carbon must be packaged in a way which appeals to homebuyers and that the issues of "indoor air quality, the use of natural materials and the creation of adaptable, flexible buildings" need to be addressed.
