Brackenfell is a Grade II listed building designed by the architect Sir Leslie Martin (of Royal Festival Hall fame) and built in 1938. It is a good example of how to undertake energy efficiency improvements with the listing in mind and the owners will discuss their approach, methodology and further ideas for the house. They recently had a 32 kW biomass pellet boiler installed by Sustaburn, who are based near Carnforth. One of the trickiest parts of the process was selecting from a broadly-priced range of quotations, and the owner will explain how he came to a decision.
