Make My Home Green, whose mission is to make UK homes warm, comfortable and energy efficient, has assessed our warehouse retrofit in West London.

Their energy Assessors are fully qualified, insured and accredited by National Energy Services (NES/NHER), and BRE, two of the UK’s leading professional accreditation bodies.

Upgrading the efficiency of an existing dwelling can be a complex process, and the results are influenced by a homeowner’s aspiration and budget, as well as the building’s suitability to various improvements.
