NEF helps East Hants make every effort to ensure energy efficiency in Whitehill & Bordon homes

29th March 2017

A team of energy efficiency specialists (including staff from the National Energy Foundation) has been recruited to ensure new homes built in Whitehill & Bordon meet the highest standards.

<p>The National Energy Foundation, commissioned by East Hampshire District Council, is working with Radian and its building contractors Drew Smith on new homes under construction in Quebec Park in Whitehill &amp; Bordon.</p>

<p>New homes typically use at least twice as much energy as predicted. But the newly-built homes on Quebec Park have received five stages of expert, impartial review and assessment by the National Energy Foundation&nbsp;under the <a href="http://www.nef.org.uk/service/existing-buildings/performance-measurement/assured-performance-process" target="_blank" title="NEF Assured Performance Process">Assured Performance Process</a>.</p>

<p>The five stages range from planning and design through to construction and completion. This means the new homes should deliver the energy and carbon performance they are designed to achieve.</p>

<p>Cllr Adam Carew, Porfolio Holder for Environment at East Hampshire District Council, said: &ldquo;Everything we do in Whitehill &amp; Bordon is underpinned by a clear focus on quality and environmental performance.</p>

<p>&ldquo;That&rsquo;s why we have engaged the National Energy Foundation to work on-site with the builders to make sure the homes we deliver meet the highest possible standards.</p

<p>&ldquo;The Assured Performance Process these homes have been though will ensure they are energy-efficient, keep heat in the home and keep energy bills low.&rdquo;</p>
