Code for Sustainable Homes has been phased out following the Housing Standards Review in 2015, however as experienced qualified assessors we can still complete assessments for legacy cases.
Blewburton Limited helped a single four bed dwelling constructed within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to be Code Level 3 compliant.
This development is a rural exception site which requires a minimum Code Level 3 compliance. Blewburton Limited took the development from pre-assessment, design, consultancy and Post Construction Review, and Blewburton performed the SAP calculations to help all dwellings exceed Part L1A by at least 25%.
Blewburton Limited worked with the developer from the early design stage providing advice on the most effective measures to take to achieve the desired Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, through to Design Stage submission and Post Construction Review. The construction subsequently won the LABC Central Building Excellence Award for Best Social or Affordable Housing Scheme.
