Compliant Specifications for Homes

We advise on BREEAM/Code/EcoHomes-Compliant Specification Clauses for use in Contract documents.

We can review ‘typical’ or ‘base’ housing specifications (such as ERs) and then revise them to achieve an agreed ‘Target Rating’, or we can write them from scratch. Once the Specifications are tuned for a Target Rating, the Tenders returned will be more accurate and the chosen Contractor will have more time to procure correctly and with a justified profit and less risk of later alterations. This service also speeds up the Interim Certification process by reducing time spent by the Project Manager and other consultants, on providing ‘evidence’ for the Interim Assessment QA & Certification.

Compliant Specifications significantly aid timely delivery of BREEAM, Code and EcoHomes Certification.

Sensible Energy Saving Tip

Buy recycled paper but be aware 'recycled' can mean a wide variety of things: Some manufacturers who display the recycled logo include only small amounts of 'first hand' paper off-cuts rather than more eco-friendly 'post-consumer waste'. Using these off-cuts if of course better than wasting them, but is not the most environmentally friendly way to make paper products.
