How robotics can reduce carbon emissions in housing: A case study in robotic underfloor insulation



Research from the National Housing Federation (NHF) revealed that England’s homes produce more carbon emissions every year than is produced by all of the country’s cars. The development of technological advancements in robotics for the application of insulation measures can help reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions from buildings, in turn helping to reduce fuel poverty.  Michael Burnside is a Qualified Building Surveyor with extensive experience of refurbishment of existing housing stock and planned maintenance.  In this webinar Michael discusses a case study of the use of robots for applying under floor insulation without having to lift carpets or floorboards.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
