Bere Architects have moved their office into the Mildmay Centre on Woodville Road in London.

Justin Bere wrote in his company’s blog that by the end of November 2012, not a single penny has been spent on heating at the Mildmay Centre yet the indoor temperatures throughout the building remained very comfortable at between 21° and 22°C.

Justin Bere asks why aren’t all new buildings built like the Mildmay Centre in London?

Why isn’t the UK government mobilising a massively overdue mass-retrofit in order to save energy, save money, reduce carbon emissions and the harm these emissions cause, and create new jobs in a new green economy?

He wants the UK government in particular to wake-up to the benefits of making the building stock superbly energy efficient.
