Marsh House, designed and built by Julian Marsh in Guardian's top 10 UK Eco homes

We are delighted to hear the Guardian's top 10 UK Eco homes features Marsh House, a local sustainable build situated in the Meadows.

Longstanding NEP board member and local architect Julian Marsh designed and built the property which was once a commercial dwelling called 'The Meat Factory'.

Lots of detail about the energy saving measures in the guardian's article.

Marsh House is the final destination of our Nottingham Green Door tour taking place on 22nd and 26th April.  There are still places available, please call Alison on 0115 985 9057 to book.

Still not seen our Greener Living films?

Our six minute film is a valuable tool at our community events and energy workshops, it has also been played to a slightly larger crowd at 2013 Grand Design LIVE, on the request of MP Ed Davey.  1000's of attendees saw our stick men and NEP customers in action and sharing their experience of the benefits and how the install process was for them.

The film starts off with relatively cheap and quick to install measures, loft and cavity wall insulation.  The application of solid wall insulation is then covered and features accounts from Aspley Super Warm Zone customers.  Next is solar power, and rounding it off is the green tips section.

In short, this short film shows how you can improve the energy efficiency of your home by installing practical measures and following simple green tips.  

Sit down, and take it all in (make sure you turn up the volume) - made by Black Hawk Productions:

Solid wall insulation section only  (this was played as a trailer in the opening week of Bond's Skyfall movie at The Broadway, Nottingham's art house cinema).
