The Home Quality Mark (HQM) is a new, voluntary, national quality mark that will give those buying or renting new homes the confidence that they are choosing a well built, cost-effective home that is designed and built to exceed their expectations.
It will provide clear information from independent experts on a new home’s quality. Giving householders clear indications of the overall expected operating costs to them, how the home will benefit their health and wellbeing and the environmental footprint of living in the home.
Developed and administered by the Building Research Establishment, the HQM is based upon years of experience with standards of this type and can be regarded as the natural evolutionary step onwards from the now defunct Code for Sustainable Homes. HQM is part of the BREEAM family of quality sustainability standards.
Our service includes advice on the most cost effective means of compliance, help with gathering evidence and an approach that places accessible and responsive communication with the client at the centre of the process.
