Challenged by senior management to build a high performance level that is net zero ready, Jonathan Meads shares the challenges facing the construction community.

‘A net zero home offsets the energy used. The only difference between a net zero home and a net zero home is that you don’t have the ability to capture energy installed in your home, but it’s designed so that it can be added in the future.
