Code for Sustainable Homes
It is now mandatory for all new housing developments to meet the minimum of Code Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes throughout Wales.
The Code is an environmental assessment tool introduced to ensure new homes achieve the new standards. The code also promotes the construction of high performance homes which are eco-friendly and sustainable. A dwelling constructed in line with the Code will have greatly reduced energy consumption.
The Code measures the sustainability of a new home against nine
categories of sustainable design, rating the 'whole home' as a complete package. The Code uses a one to six star rating system to communicate the overall sustainability performance of a new home.
We offer :
- Initial assessment and advice for compliance
- Full design assessment, documentation & submission
- Quality assurance & inspection for certification
The code assement package would normally be undertaken on all in house designs, but can also be offered as a service to ensure designs, carried out elsewhere, can also be brought to code standards
