Code for Sustainable Homes advice

British Eco energy can advise build and architects on how to meet new government codes for sustainable homes.

In April 2007, the Code for Sustainable Homes replaced Ecohomes for the assessment of new housing in England. The code is an environmental assessment method for new homes based on BRE's Ecohomes and contains mandatory performance levels in 6 key areas.

The Code aims to protect the environment by providing guidance on the construction of high performance homes built with sustainability in mind.

BRE and Communities and Local Government have worked closely together to ensure that the code meets the latest regulatory requirements and addresses issues that emerged from an earlier industry wide consultation.

Many house builders who currently use Ecohomes will find the credit system of the code familiar. Users will notice that there are new mandatory minimum levels of performance that have been introduced across 6 key issues:
1 Energy efficiency
2 Water efficiency
3 Surface water management
4 Site waste management
5 Household waste management
6 Use of materials
