Eco Building Magazine features Shirecliffe project – 29/03/11

Eco Building Magazine

Henry Boot Construction’s Shirecliffe New Homes project is the focus of an extended article in this month’s Eco Building Magazine.

A pilot scheme to bring one of the plots up from Level 4 to Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes is the focus of the piece, which discusses the project in the context of the national sustainability agenda.

Henry Boot Construction funded in-house training for a number of staff to become trained Code assessors, and worked with an energy saving consultant in order to meet, and significantly improve upon, the strict air-tightness and renewable energy targets.

“Climate change is one of the greatest threats we face, and with the push to make all new homes zero carbon from 2016, not to mention the upgrading of the existing housing stock, we are happy to invest in schemes that will enable us to adapt to the changing market.”

Simon Carr, Managing Director
