The Code for Sustainable Homes is the National standard for the design and construction of new-build residential properties in England. The Code sets the mandatory sustainable design standards in 9 key areas.
1: Energy & CO2 emissions
4: Surface water run-off
7: Health & well-being
A number of Local Authorities have introduced requirements in their local planning policy which makes it mandatory for all new build residential developments to attain a rating level of 3 or 4. Compliance with the Code for Sustainable Homes may also be required by way of a planning condition.

Whether you require pre-assessment reports, guidance during the design stage or advice on the most appropriate code level achievement strategy for your development, our experienced and qualified Code assessors offer Code for Sustainable assessment and advisory services across the country.
