Final Friday Five
February – it’s the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on! See below for our round up of the best articles from the past month…
Earlier this month the government announced its plans to ‘fix the broken housing market’ and build more homes across England. This included a series of measures to build homes in the right places, to speed up house building and to help diversify the housing market.

We’re exhibiting at CIH South East in two weeks’ time, showcasing a range of our optimum, premium and high performance products.

Do pop by and say hello if you’re attending!
It’s awards season! While most of us are waiting to see whether La La Land sweeps this year’s Academy Awards, edie.net has put together its own list to celebrate the very best of climate-change cinema.
The list includes everything from Disney favourite Moana (which shoes how dependent some communities are on the surrounding environment) to Leonardo DiCaprio for his ‘Before the Flood’ documentary.
No surprise as to who won the Lifetime Achievement Award…!
On that note, we’re incredibly pleased that our very own Richard Burnley has been elected Chair of the Sustainable Energy Association (SEA) Executive Committee.
Richard commented: I’m delighted to take up this role and look forward to working with the SEA team to continue to shape the future policy framework.
Do you just love The US Office? If so, you’ll feel like you know Dunder Mifflin like the back of your hand.
And any Mad Men fans will have seen Don Draper walking through Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce countless times.
These are just two of the fictional environments that have been recreated as 3D plans by Drawbotics. The team spent hours binge-watching their favourite TV shows, before recreating authentic floor plans each fictitious office. (Sounds like a pretty good weeks’ work to us…!)
