Leading the Future Homes Agenda
Building the UK's future homes. Today.
Sustainability as standard. That’s always been our promise. Today, through our direct involvement with Energy House 2.0, our commitment to environmental progress has never been stronger. We’re proud to embed sustainability into future homes. And we always stand ready to guide fabricators and specifiers through the latest environmental regulations.
Introducing Energy House 2.0
Completed in February 2022 at the University of Salford, the £16m Energy House 2.0 is a pioneering laboratory of future homes testing. Inside its two environmental chambers are two detached houses in fully controlled weather conditions.
- Temperatures ranging from -20˚C to +40˚C
- Simulated wind, rain, snow, and solar radiation
- 200+ monitoring points collecting real time data
- Modus specified for its thermal performance and U-Values
Proud to be part of The Future Homes Hub
Eurocell is one of 40+ organisations working together through The Future Homes Hub. By building the collaboration needed for the construction sector to contribute to the government’s legally-binding Net Zero commitments and wider environmental
targets, we are at the forefront of sustainability. The Future Homes Hub aims to:
- Develop high quality homes that are zero-carbon-ready and sustainable
- Deliver places and developments that are consistently low carbon, nature-rich, resilient, healthy, well designed and beautiful by 2025
- Develop production and construction methods that are Net Zero and sustainable by 2050 (with substantial progress by 2025 and 2030)
- Encourage businesses to be recognised and rewarded for Net Zero and sustainability performance
Modus windows: at the heart of future homes
Thermal efficiency is key for future homes. That’s why Eurocell’s Modus window system, with its triple-seal option for superb thermal performance, air tightness, and noise reduction, is being specified on homes of the future.
The result of a £3m research investment, Modus windows are made from average 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U and offer U-values as low as 0.7 – which exceeds Passivhaus standards.
- Guaranteed performance
- Wide range of colours and styles
- Eight systems in one
