Energy Building 2, Salford University
The Energy House 2.0 laboratory will be the largest test and research facility of its type and will play a leading role in development of new low carbon homes and retrofit technologies. With two environmental chambers each able to accommodate two detached houses and under controlled conditions, recreate a wide variety of weather conditions with temperatures ranging between -20˚C to +40˚C and simulated wind, rain, snow and solar radiation. This unique facility will play a key role in accelerating the progress towards low carbon and net zero housing design
Bowmer & Kirkland employed Lateral as an independent advisor to lead the commissioning and testing of the facility to achieve a successful handover to Salford University.
