Domestic Energy Assessments
1. CODE for SUSTAINABLE HOMES (CSH)
Assessments are used to demonstrate the environmental performance and sustainability of domestic new-build projects.
A CSH rating will be required when the client wishes to assess the environmental quality of their project,Government funding is involved, or when it is a planning requirement.
Many Planning Authorities and Housing Associations in England and Wales require certification to Level 3 or Level 4.
Projects are assessed at two stages: Design Stage and Post Construction.
