The Future Homes Standard announced in October is now open to consultation until January 2020. The standard aims to increase the energy efficiency requirements for new homes in 2020, requiring ALL new build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.  

This is the first stage of a two-part consultation about proposed changes to the Building Regulations covering the wider impacts of Part L for new homes, including changes to Part F (ventilation), its associated Approved Document guidance, airtightness and improving as-built performance of the constructed home.

Geoff WilkinsonThis session will be lead by Geoff Wilkinson, Managing Director of Wilkinson Construction Consultants, award-winning Approved Inspectors.
