Elmhurst member tells Government Minister how it is
Elmhurst Energy was proud to read that AES Sustainability Consultants, a member client of Elmhurst for many years, features strongly in this year's Parliamentary Review on Property.
The Parliamentary Review is a series of independent publications which aim to share best practice among policy makers and business leaders. Invited participants share personal insight alongside cabinet ministers, government agencies, associations and trade bodies to provide a comprehensive summary of the past year and a reliable template for the year to come.
In his three page article (pages 28 - 30) AES's MD Jon Bodington presents a well structured argument that quality and sustainability are as essential in housing as it is in other commercial sectors. The experience of Volkswagen illustrates how customers react when products do not meet the environmental claims being made.
Jon goes on to argue that industry need to focus on quality and reduce the so called "performance gap", the phenomena where some buildings do not perform as well as the design predicted.
