This recorded webinar will look into the newly finished Zero Bills house at the BRE innovation park which aims to challenge how we currently build homes. Built to have very low operating costs, the webinar will also delve into how the home benefits occupants health and wellbeing. The Zero Bills home achieves all of this, as well as having a low environmental impact. As one of the first homes to go through the Home Quality Mark assessment, the webinar will explore the benefits of independent third party assessment and how it can help consumers understand the benefits of high quality sustainable homes.
