London Bite-Size sessions | 17:00 – 19:00 | Pollard Thomas Edwards, Diespeker Wharf, 38 Graham Street, London, N1 8JX

10 December 2015 | Home Quality Mark – Engaging Consumers Book now!

With the demise of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the Zero Carbon Homes target consigned to history, what targets should we as construction professionals be aiming for when designing homes fit for the 21st Century? Without some sort of sustainability standards, will our new homes simply be ‘building regulations compliant’ or should we demand more?

Gwyn Roberts, the new Homes and Communities lead at BRE, will be making a presentation on the brand new Home Quality Mark (HQM) standard, a sustainable homes initiative from BRE.

Gwyn will introduce the HQM, describe the issues it covers and inform delegates of the progress of the HQM to date. After a Q&A session, delegates will then work in groups to carry out a short exercise assessing some of the tools and drivers that might encourage clients to use the HQM.

Gwyn Roberts is the New Homes and Communities lead at BRE. BRE is the UK leading building science centre with a 90 year history.

Gwyn has years of experience within the sustainable housing sector from a number of different angles, while at BRE he has led the work on the development of the Home Quality Mark and also the response to Government’s Housing Standards Review. Previous to this, Gwyn worked as a sustainability consultant in the North West of England working on a range of housing projects from self-build dwellings in national parks, to large housing schemes in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham for some of the UK’s largest house builders.
