From conversations with a variety of ecovators and written feedback from the Ecovation Open Day event, we gathered, that the hardest bit of eco-renovation can sometimes be the finding of suitable, experienced and specialised ecovation professionals. Whether you have just moved into a new house and want to eco-renovate it from the base upwards or whether you want to add more eco features to your urban flat - we hope to give you an idea of what can be done and who might be able to help you with your personal plans.

About 25 different organisations and professionals including architects, builders, material suppliers and energy experts took part to introduce ecovation possibilities and up-to-date procedures and techniques. There were also plenty of opportunies to ask questions and take away info material...
