About Us EnvironmentEmail a friend
As responsible developers, our objective is to create environmentally sensitive and sustainable developments. As a result, we follow sound best practice principles throughout the planning, design and build stages of our developments.
We are committed to designing homes in association with planners and industry bodies that are energy efficient. That means incorporating environmental performance standards in accordance with 'Part L' of the Building Regulations into the houses we build. It also means assessing the energy efficiency of the materials we use and employing renewable energy technology to reduce consumption of fossil fuels and carbon dioxide emissions. Finally, it means considering things like recycling, the use of water efficient appliances, water conservation, preservation of ecology and general health and well-being when designing our developments.
We ensure our developments recognise and fit with the natural environment and their surrounding landscape setting. We strive to protect, preserve and enhance the natural site features and we work closely with the Environment Agency, Natural England and local wildlife groups to manage and maintain any protected flora and fauna. We always endeavour to enhance the local landscape and habitats to encourage and increase biodiversity.
During our construction process we seek to protect the environment in which we work and are committed to reducing waste. A proportion of our developments are on brownfield sites, making a more efficient use of land.
