GCU’s energy efficient house now on display

A partnership between GCU, Applegreen Homes and Spacesix Architects has created the affordable, energy efficient house of the future.

The new house will feature a solar-energy package that will help to reduce electricity and heating bills, aiming to eradicate fuel poverty. Prices start at only £49,999 for a three-bedroom home. The unique Applegreen Homes concept was designed by Glasgow firm Spacesix Architects with assistance from GCU, who researched and developed all aspects of the build, ensuring it is highly energy efficient yet affordable.

The showhouse is now on display in the prestigious BRE Innovation Park, based at the former Ravenscraig steelworks site in Motherwell.
