Building for 2050 – research into low carbon, low-cost, new build housing

The Building for 2050 project led by multi-disciplinary consultancy AECOM, is a major project funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Its purpose is to identify the drivers, attitudes, barriers and challenges relating to the large-scale delivery and uptake of low-cost, low carbon housing in England and Wales. It considers both the pull and push factors relating to delivery of housing fit for the future. Increasingly, the numbers of such homes being built will contribute to the ambitious targets within the UK Clean Growth Strategy and reduce energy use and bills for residents, while delivering attractive and comfortable homes.
