Architect Justin Bere is so determined to be part of the solution to climate change that he’s set up his own glazing business

As an architect, it was never Justin Bere’s ambition to set up a window company. But frustration at the standard of UK-manufactured windows, coupled with his admiration for German-made Bayer products, led him to do just that, and this summer Double Good Windows was born.


The amazing thing about Comfort-Haus is that it doesn’t need a boiler. It has no radiators, no underfloor heating or air conditioning, yet it stays warm in winter and cool in summer. With insulation three times better than current building standards and air-tightness 14 times better than building regulations, the heat from people, appliances and the sun are retained in the building to maintain a comfortable year-round temperature.

James Bond eat your heart out. I’m standing in a vast, 12m x 12m x 13.4m, brick-built bascule chamber 5m below water level and a 420-tonne counterweight is slowly moving towards me.

London’s Tower Bridge is being raised and like Bond, I will manage to get out of this fix in the nick of time. When the bridge is fully raised, the counterweight will stop with inches to spare.
