Carbon Zero building

Almost any house is capable of achieving a carbon zero rating. That’s the findings of buildings' performance expert Dr Lubo Jankovic, as reported in an article in Green Building Magazine.

“Dr Jankovic says rather than concentrating on new build standards, the challenge will be to make 95 per cent of existing housing stock eco-compliant.”

Dr Jankovic, from Birmingham City University's School of Architecture and Centre for Low Carbon Research, has led a detailed monitoring of a zero carbon house designed by John Christophers of Associated Architects. The house originates from 1840 and is in Balsall Heath, Birmingham.
