The Home Quality Mark (HQM) is a voluntary measure of sustainability for new home builds in England that is currently taking the place of the ‘code for sustainable homes’.
This was originally introduced in 2006, but many of the standards were rolled into general building regulations in 2015. However, homeowners can still put themselves forward for assessment against the code if they’re building a new home.
We recommend that you browse the technical guide for the HQM. The HQM provides developers with all the guidance they need to design and construct a home that truly reaches the highest possible sustainability standards that consumers expect.
At EPC Buildings, we provide sustainable Eco home design, construction and installation throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. If you require technical instruction regarding the sustainability of your planned Eco home, simply contact us today.
