CHALLENGE 
To overcome lack of daylight in the windowless hallways and bathrooms 
RESULTS 
Significant cost savings made 
PRODUCT 
184 Solatube Brighten Up Series units 
FACILITY 
Renovated social housing bungalows 
BACKGROUND: United Living Group recently completed improvements to homes in County Durham during a three-year renovation programme. As part of this project, 184 Solatube Daylighting Systems were installed in bungalows. 
 
CHALLENGE: Prior to renovation, one of the problems suffered by these homes was lack of daylight in the windowless hallways and bathrooms. 
 
SOLUTION: Solatube Daylighting Systems offered a solution that was far more cost effective and efficient than traditional windows or rooflights. 
 
RESULTS: Not only were the products less expensive, there was no restructuring or making good required, so the overall savings were significant. The Solatube BBA Certification was also a key factor in the decision-making process as was the thermal efficiency of the Solatube Daylighting Systems. 
 
“With the refurbishment of homes continuing to present a challenge and with the majority of housing stock requiring some level of retrofit, we are supporting our customers to drive improved energy efficiency and create warmer homes, leading to reduction in fuel poverty and better health for their tenants.” 
Ian Burnett, CEO United Living Group
