A greener alternative
We work closely with Local Planners and also the Environment Agency to ensure that, we not only comply with these regulations, but, also that our build quality is second to none. When planning our developments, we take great care to ensure that we have adequate drainage systems in place and areas of open space.
We use the latest building materials that are not only more energy efficient, but also to prevent issues such as damp. Double glazed windows and doors are incorporated into the build to provide much improved heat retention with insulation being incorporated into floor, wall and loft cavities to provide the best possible thermal values. There are also huge environmental benefits and long-term energy cost savings when buying a new build. In England and Wales, we are lucky to have some of the best energy efficiency standards in the world.

Installing the latest boiler these days is often half the size of what you may remember previously having and extremely quiet. It not only ensures you get hot water when you need it, it heats your home quickly and efficiently with individual controls to both floors and rooms.
