The UK’s leading building science centre, BRE, is introducing the Home Quality Mark
The criteria against which homes will be assessed for the Home Quality Mark (HQM) are based on the latest scientific research into issues such as energy and water efficiency, effective insulation, noise reduction, lighting and air quality and the wellbeing of occupants – along with wider environmental issues such as climate change and carbon reduction.
The Home Quality Mark is part of the BREEAM Family. BREEAM is the world’s most widely used environmental assessment methodology, it measures the sustainability and environmental impact of building including offices, shops, factories, schools, hospitals and others – and now is used in more than 70 countries.
HQM ONE is now available.
