Environmental design standards

During 2010 we built 570 homes to level three of the Code for Sustainable Homes. We also built 923 homes to EcoHomes standards in 2010, including 191 to EcoHomes Good, 524 to Very Good and 208 to Excellent. We are currently working in partnership to build 780 homes to level four of the Code at Waterside Park in East London.

In North America, we increasingly build homes under the US and Canadian Government backed Energy Star programme. All homes built by our Austin, Denver and Houston Divisions are Energy Star qualified and, in 2010, our Denver Division received a Partner of the Year award from Energy Star. Our Austin Division also offers customers the option of additional energy efficiency upgrades.
