Kingspan Low Energy Homes Hub Launched at Potton Show Centre
The UK’s leading self build specialist Potton, in collaboration with Kingspan, the global leader in high performance insulation, building fabric solutions, renewable energy and water solutions, has opened a brand new low energy home information hub at Potton’s Self Build Show Centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.
- Essential information on Kingspan Insulation and Kingspan Environmental products
- Accessible to all Potton Show Centre visitors
- Peace of mind when specifying and procuring building fabric solutions and renewables
- Includes SAP assessment voucher (terms apply)
- Interactive U-Value Calculator
The Kingspan Low Energy Homes Hub has been designed by Potton to provide self builders with a comprehensive range of information on insulation products, provide guidance with specification and procurement, and critically, point them in the right direction to ensure their new home will be as energy efficient as possible – right from the outset of their project.
With interactive technology installed, the Hub allows prospective self-builders to access Kingspan Insulation’s on-line U-value calculator which instantly provides a recommended insulation solution and the resulting U Value for planned projects.
In addition, visitors will have access to Kingspan Environmental’s extensive range of sustainable solutions such as renewable heating, off-mains drainage and rainwater harvesting, and this insight will help visitors understand how the renewable heat incentive (RHI) can reduce both energy bills and carbon footprint by using solar heating. The hub will also provide details of what options are available when properties won’t be connected to mains sewage.
All visitors will also receive a half price SAP assessment voucher which can be redeemed if they become a Potton customer.
Accessible to all Show Centre visitors, regardless of whether they intend to build with Potton or not, The Hub also provides free information about U-Value calculation; condensation risk analysis and product solutions for wall, floor, roof insulation.
Paul Newman, Self Build Director, Potton said: “Specification and procurement of building fabric solutions and energy efficiency elements is a critical part of a self-build project. Crucial decisions have to be made early on in the process that will determine the long-term outcome of the efficiency of a new home - it can be a risky exercise with lots of room for error.
“As part of the Kingspan Group of companies, Potton is ideally placed to understand sustainable construction methods, environmental sustainability and cost effective, risk free procurement for self builders and it is hoped that The Kingspan Low Energy Homes Hub will soon become an invaluable resource to anyone embarking on a self build project."
Potton’s unique Self Build Show Centre has over 6,000 visitors each year and is essential viewing for any would-be self builder. With four show homes and an information centre providing invaluable advice and design ideas on self build, the Kingspan Low Energy Homes Hub is a perfect complement to it.
