Code for Sustainable Homes

As of the 1st May 2008 the government confirmed a mandatory rating against the code will be implemented for new homes.

The Code measures the sustainability of a new home against categories of sustainable design, rating the ‘whole home’ as a complete package. The code uses a 1 to 6 star rating system to communicate the overall sustainability performance of a new home. The Code sets minimum standards for energy and water use at each level.
