We have embraced the need for sustainability in all their developments and have incorporated The Code for Sustainable Homes into the design and construction of their properties for the last 5 years, in our contract and residential housebuilding. The Code is the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes. It aims to reduce carbon emissions and promote higher standards of sustainable design above the current minimum standards set out by the building regulations.
