The Home Quality Mark (HQM) was launched by the BRE in 2015 as a consumer orientated comparison tool, that provides a star rating as well as ‘Quality Indicators’ about a newly built dwelling.
This new assessment enables house builders to demonstrate the high quality of their homes and to differentiate them in the marketplace. By providing impartial information from independent experts on a new home’s quality, HQM clearly indicates overall expected costs, health and wellbeing benefits, and environmental footprint associated with living in the home. In short, HQM helps everyone to fully understand the quality, performance and attributes of a new-build home.
BTP Architects are one of the first practices in the country to offer this new service. The scheme builds upon the success of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH), which provided an environmental assessment method for rating the performance of new homes.
BTP are registered Code Assessors and have been providing Code Services for over 8 years. For those clients still needing to undertake CfSH Legacy Assessments, BTP are able to offer this service.
