Housing for the information age
This is a report of work by the Housing Forum on the application of information-age digital technologies with the potential to improve the quality and value of housing by harnessing consumer pull. A system of Home Performance Labelling is proposed to kick-start the process.
The digital age has transformed consumers' experience in all aspects of life, from the way we shop, listen to music, work and communicate. But digital technology is yet to impact on housing and the house building industry, or help drive energy efficiency – one of the biggest challenges facing the building stock.
Aggregate Industries have been involved on the working party who have prepared and drawn up the report - submitted for your comments please.
