Open Eco Homes Retrospective

Open Eco Homes Retrospective

Wed 18 Oct 2023, 7:00pm – 8:00pm

Three popular properties look back on what they have learnt

Join three hosts from some of our most popular properties over the last 10 years, to hear what they have learnt, what they would do differently and about all their successes in carbon and energy reduction.

Ian Cray – Ian’s new build home on Aberdeen Square showcased in our OEH tours 10 years ago. As an early adopter of Air Source Heating, EV charging and home battery storage he has gained experience that he’ll share , what he has leant and how this could be applied to your projects and projects that he is currently working on. 

Shaun Lindsay – Shaun and his wife first featured their home in our tours in 2018 after completely renovating their 1960’s home in Macfarlane Close, Impington moving from a D to very high B EPC rating. In the intervening years their family has benefited significantly from the improvements made, both in terms of health, economy and significantly reducing their environmental impact. With a wealth of data, experience and information Shaun will talk to you about the ups and downs, and practicalities of family living in an eco home.

Ian Collins – By far our most popular property over the years has been that of Ian Collins on Madingley Road. Built to test boundaries and provide a low carbon, comfortable and modern home Ian will discuss what he learnt from the process, the benefits and drawbacks of living with the innovative technologies used, and what he will take with him on his next adventure as he moves away from Cambridge.
