Building Sustainable Homes

We* aim 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. 

99% of the homes we currently build have an EPC rating of A or B, which means our customers enjoy lower energy bills, whatever the weather.

Brand-new homes*:

Are up to 63% cheaper to run

Could save you up to £2,600 per year on your energy bills


*Indicative figures, based on HBF "Watt a Save" report published February 2023.


To help us on this journey we have built the innovative Zed House in Manchester to showcase the latest technology and construction methods for building zero carbon homes. All our homes will be zero carbon by 2030.
