Q-Bot is featured in UKGBC’s Solutions Library to enable sustainable buildings

2 June 2021


The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has today launched a new Solutions Library designed to address shared sustainability challenges within the property and construction sector and enhance collaboration between innovators and corporates.

Many of UKGBC’s members have already set ambitious targets relating to their environmental and social impact, and all business members are now required to have a corporate commitment to climate action. Now UKGBC is focusing its work on enabling its members and the industry to achieve those targets. Addressing the climate and ecological crises requires an innovative and collaborative approach to identifying specific challenges through to creating, sourcing, and implementing solutions.

The Solutions Library offers practical and commercially viable solutions and case studies to help address common sustainability challenges across the sector. It has been launched following the success of a recent pilot solution crowdsourcing project and as part of a new wider ‘Solutions’ section of UKGBC’s website.

Q-Bot is honored to be featured in the Solutions Library listing its robotic underfloor insulation. Our innovative solution is improving the energy efficiency of existing properties with a suspended floor, directly sustainability climate change and tackling fuel poverty.

Suspended floors are responsible for 20% of a home’s total heat loss, which means cold air and damp are coming up through the floor in the downstairs living space. As the next best energy efficient measure for properties, Q-Bot has already been installed in thousands of homes, and is now essential in the retrofit pathway. Either as a whole house approach or single fabric measure, Q-Bot is vital for any property with a suspended floor, if customers are to meet the specified overall thermal efficiency requirements and/or deliver targeted savings on energy bills.

Alastair Mant, Director of Business Transformation at UKGBC:

The launch of the new Solution webpages is an exciting next step in enabling our members to meet their ambitious commitments on issues such as net-zero carbon, biodiversity, and social value. Over the last year the number of Innovative Start-Ups within our membership has nearly tripled and we hope by ramping up our engagement with the start-up community we will continue to bridge the gap between innovators and corporates and help scale up more of the practical solutions our industry is calling out for. We are therefore asking more innovative start-ups to join us and for everyone to send us solutions so that we can accelerate the necessary changes in how we design, construct, and operate built assets.
