Making historic buildings energy efficient is a great challenge, and in many ways much more difficult than building afresh. Czero is working on historic building projects where the end use has residential components, and so is combining the knowledge of energy efficient development with a knowledge and understanding of historic buildings.
The historic building knowledge comes from Simon Linford’s former involvement with Linford-Bridgeman, one of the foremost historic building restoration contractors. This has enabled Czero to get involved with difficult projects involving listed buildings, gaining the confidence of planners and conservation officers in terms of ability to deal with historic fabric, whilst being able to bring up to date techniques for improving the building fabric.
Details of all the projects of Czero’s sister company Czero Heritage can be found here. The two projects with which Czero is most closely involved can be found in the Projects section.
