Larkfleet’s eco showhome to demonstrate green living at Business Focus 2012


Monday 15th October 2012

At this year's Business Focus exhibition in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, sponsor Larkfleet Group will unveil an 'Eco Showhome' inside the main exhibition hall.

The timber-frame Eco House will demonstrate renewable and energy-efficient technologies that reduce energy costs and carbon emissions at home and in business.

Ian Greenfield, operations director at Larkfleet's Eco Building Products, said: "The technologies we're bringing to Business Focus 2012 are among the most cost-effective available for new properties and refurbishment projects. They include solar thermal water heating and photovoltaic (PV) power generation, wind turbine power generation, and ground source and air source heat pumps that extract natural energy from all around us, even in winter."

The Eco House is an example of Larkfleet Group's energy-efficient focus when it comes to construction.

Larkfleet Homes builds many of its properties to meet level 3 of the Code of Sustainable Homes - some 25% above the current minimum requirement for energy efficiency set out in building regulations.

From the timber frame construction method used in many Larkfleet properties to the renewable energy technologies it offers its homebuyers such as photovoltaic panels (PV) that produce energy from daylight, Larkfleet properties are an investment for the future.

The energy-efficient nature of Larkfleet homes could save homebuyers up to £600 a year in fuel bills.

Around a dozen technology suppliers will be exhibiting alongside the Eco House at Business Focus 2012, so that visitors can speak to the experts and find out more about making company-wide or home-life energy savings.

Business Focus 2012 will take place on Wednesday 17 October. It is set to attract around 1,000 visitors and the exhibition launches at 9am with a range of inspirational speakers and seminars plus 'Foods of the World' throughout the day.
