Publication of Solid Wall Insulation Report

Unlocking Demand and Driving Up Standards

SWI Report

 

Solid Wall Insulation Report

The Green Construction Board commissioned Peter Hansford, Chief Construction Adviser to the Government, to undertake a review of solid wall insulation. The review was to consider what more might be done to unlock demand for SWI, improve its affordability and increase its attractiveness as a solution. A call for evidence was made in April. Green Construction Board members, Rob Lambe (Willmott Dixon) and Lynne Sullivan (SustainableByDesign) agreed to support Peter as a Steering Group to the commission. The review team worked closely with but remained independent from DECC and DCLG. The Solid Wall Insulation report was published on 12 November 2015.
