Low carbon builders could be awarded

Low carbon builders could be awarded
The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) has announced that it is searching for the UK's most environmentally-friendly builders.

As part of the organisation's Master Builder of the Year Awards 2008 Energy Efficiency category, the FMB is encouraging homeowners to nominate builders that have provided low carbon housing, the Green Building reports.

It claims that any eco-project that has been well executed may qualify; this could potentially include a well insulated property, a loft extension, double glazing or event the installation of solar panels.

"Builders are at the frontline in the bid to make homes more energy efficient and environmentally-friendly, so we do hope that this year's Master Builder of the Year is a green one," said Richard Diment, FMB director general.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, solar water heating can provide around a third of a house's hot water needs.
