As well as promoting a sustainable approach to our own activities, we are also aware of the importance of sustainability and environment amongst both contractors and self builders. Self Builders can count on the Tudor Griffiths Group to help them with their lifetime dream of constructing their new home whilst embracing environmental friendly values.
Making your self-build home environmentally friendly is about more than just protecting the planet – it is an approach that can help to prolong the life of your home and reduce the need for any major building works in the future.
With an increasing number of incentives to support sustainable building, there has never been a better time to go green.
Why should you want to become involved with becoming environmentally friendly in the first place?
The Tudor Griffiths Group wants to help self builders, and their builders, to comply with the Code for Sustainable Homes (CFSH), an important part of the Government’s response to the ever encroaching environmental threat. The CFSH lays down a national standard for sustainable design and construction of new homes.
How could this affect your home?
Use less energy in your home and reduce your bills – try lower energy lighting, turning electrical appliances off instead of leaving them on stand-by, use thermostatic controls on your heating systems and many more solutions.
The choice of sustainable materials available is expansive from timber frames to lime renders, hemp walls to recycled glass floors. It is important to understand what characteristics make products sustainable, so you can be assured that your project is really making a difference.
