House Builders

It remains a fact that over 50% of the energy we consume in our homes is used for heating. To retrofit the required technologies for insulation and renewable heating on our current housing stock is a huge task and one that is being stimulated via programmes such as the Green Homes Grant.

Given the challenges of retrofitting current homes it is therefore a special responsibility of all housebuilders, both large and small,  to ensure that new houses being built not only meet the minimum standards, but moreover use the latest technologies to minimise greenhouse gas emissions.

To meet our climate change commitments the UK housing stock will need to be almost completely decarbonised by 2050.

The full range of renewable technologies for both solar and renewable heat are now commercially within reach for every housing project in the UK.

Building Regulations Part L: A Guide to the New Changes

Changes to Building Regulations Part L take effect from 15 June – here’s how they could impact self builders and extenders.

Building Regulations Part L covers the conservation of fuel and power in the building of new homes in England, and establishes how energy-efficient new and existing homes should be.

All new homes must produce 31% less carbon emissions than what is currently acceptable in the present Part L regulations. 

The changes could affect anyone undertaking a home improvement project, extension, renovation or self build, so we have put together everything you need to know about Part L, the new regulations, and how the changes will apply to your project.
