Technical Report: Environmental Assessment of Domestic Laundering

The Technical Report Project Module 1 for 'Environmental Assessment of Domestic Laundering' (EPSRC Contract: EP/G00028X/1) is the architectural 'quarry' from which the Design Guide: Healthy Low Energy Home Laundering and other publications, for example journal papers, have been excavated. This involved ‘digging into’ relevant habits of 22 monitored households, in order to identify a narrative of similarity and difference between them. An analytical examination of data from the entire set of 100 households initially surveyed follows and relevant appendices are included, e.g. measured ironing experiments and statistical analysis. Observations are synthesised as provisional conclusions in the executive summary; provisional since the technical findings of two related Project Modules, essentially laboratory investigations and computer modelling, are described in separate reports.
