Sustainable Buildings


Increasing media attention and public concern over environmental issues, notably climate change, has given rise to a growing appetite among consumers for more sustainable products and services. Good building design can make a great contribution to reducing pollution and improving the environment.

 

Over the coming years all new homes will be required to meet tougher minimum standards as Building Regulations are reviewed, The Code for Sustainable Homes is seen as a forerunner of those changes. The Government target is zero emission homes, mandatory for both private and public sectors by 2016. Lloyd Davenport can provide you with insulation solutions to help you reach these targets in the Energy and CO2 emissions category, and through sound insulation, the Health and Well-being category.

We have been proud to work with the William Lacey Group in delivering a development of Code Level 5W Lacey insulation homes achieved in part through excellent insulation and photovoltaic roof tiles.
