Energy efficient housebuilding – meet uplifts to Parts L and F with VELFAC composite windows

In recent research by Housebuilder and Developer, almost 40 per cent of builders interviewed said that their customers wanted homes with a reduced carbon footprint. This is also a key driver for the UK Government’s Future Homes Standard (FHS) and recent uplifts to Building Regulations Parts L and F on energy consumption and ventilation.

It’s clear that the market – and the Government – wants affordable homes which are also good for the planet. The challenge for housebuilders is finding products which can meet demanding sustainability targets without compromising design, performance or budget.
