What Is the Code For Sustainable Homes?
The Code for Sustainable homes is a set of standards established in 2005 for building new sustainable housing that work towards UK carbon emission reduction targets. Until 2015 all new homes were obligated to be built under the guidelines, however this is now voluntary. The Code for Sustainable Homes replaced the EcoHomes as the assessment for new residential builds.
Residential buildings constructed using the Code for Sustainable Homes are inspected at the design stage and once again when construction has been completed. The standard looks at sustainability many aspects of the building’s design and construction such as:
- Energy and carbon dioxide emissions
- Surface water run-off
- Health and wellbeing
Each category is held to a range of targets that the building is rated against. Once these targets have been satisfied, the home will be awarded with a certificate of approval.
