Building Sustainable Homes

As the country’s largest housebuilder we* have a responsibility to build for the future and we want to be  the UK’s leading national sustainable housebuilder. 

Our new houses use highly thermally efficient insulation and argon-filled double-glazing as standard, which allows the heat from the sun in whilst minimising heat loss. This means that brand new homes are up to 63% cheaper to run, which could lead to savings of up to £2,600 on household energy bills (Indicative figures, based on HBF "Watt a Save" report published February 2023).


To showcase the latest technology and construction methods for building zero carbon homes, we have built the Zed House in Manchester – a blueprint for future housebuilding. All our homes will be zero carbon by 2030.
