We have an excellent track record of building high quality new homes that are comfortable, highly energy and water efficient, and which aim to improve our customer’s quality of life. In choosing one of our new homes you are reducing your environmental footprint and saving money which at this time of ever increasing utility costs is important.
Today the world's attention is firmly placed on combating climate change. Around 25% of the UK's carbon emissions are generated in homes and in Britain on average, £1 in every £3 spent on energy in older homes is wasted immediately. However, one of our new homes is on average 6.5 times more energy efficient than one built just 30 years ago.
Our developments contribute to a higher quality of life by protecting the environment, promoting social cohesion and strengthening the local economy. In addition, our new homes are well designed, comfortable, safe and adaptable, and wherever possible they are constructed from materials that have a reduced impact on the environment.
We are reducing our environmental impacts by measuring our schemes against the Government's Code for Sustainable Homes (the Code).
The Code offers our customers the benefits of reduced costs through superior energy and water efficiency, and reduced maintenance, as well as comfortable, healthy, and flexible internal living space. They therefore help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which in turn safeguards the environment.
The Code for Sustainable Homes provides a comprehensive measure of the sustainability of individual new homes and developments. The Code ensures that new homes deliver measurable improvements in key areas such as carbon dioxide emissions and water use. Each development is rated from Code Level 1 through to zero carbon at Code Level 6. Acton Gardens has been rated as Code Level 4.
The Code covers nine categories including: energy and CO2 emissions; water; materials; surface water run-off; waste; pollution; health and well being; management and ecology. The Code ensures that new homes are designed and built in advance of current building regulations.
