The Homes and Communities Agency’s requirements are driving developers toward construction of “homes” rather than simply dwellings (“New standards could add £10k to new homes”,

People want homes and communities where they and their families can have a life, not just featureless “boxes”.

The work we have done on creating sustainable communities shows that it is possible to design and construct mixed-use communities to live, work, play, learn, socialise, retire and enjoy life with very little extra cost using tools such as BREEAM Communities.
