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.
