I have chosen the broad topic of sustainability but I am hoping to examine sustainable housing level 6 for 2016. Kingspan recently designed level 6 houses for an exhibition in Watford. The lighthouse has been designed to meet the criteria of level 6 of the code for sustainable homes, the standard to which all homes have to be designed by 2016.
I was hoping to look at this topic in a number of different categories namely; design, technical design ( adopting to the climate) , solar gain and solar shading , selective thermal mass , wind catcher / light funnel , building services , construction , how to achieve level 6 .
I would be grateful if you could let me know your feelings on my proposed dissertation topic and also pass on all relevant information that you think might help.
