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.
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 & Bordon.
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 under the Assured Performance Process.
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.
Cllr Adam Carew, Porfolio Holder for Environment at East Hampshire District Council, said: “Everything we do in Whitehill & Bordon is underpinned by a clear focus on quality and environmental performance.
“That’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.
“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.”
