The Greenleaf Road Project, a partnership with Waltham Forest Council, involved the retro-conversion of a semi-detached Edwardian terrace house on Walthamstow’s Greenleaf Road. The four-bedroom property typifies much of the area’s outdated housing stock, with an Energy Performance Certificate rating far-beneath the national average.

Even given some improvements down the decades, the house still had a below average Energy Performance Certificate rating of E. It is an often forgotten fact that our homes – not transport – are the biggest generators of greenhouse gases. In Waltham Forest alone it accounts for around 50 per cent of the borough’s emissions, a lot of that through lost heat and wasted energy.

Waltham Forest set a challenge to improve its energy performance to the top rating of A, Aston Group got down to work – costing each adaptation with an estimated saving per year.
