With Alan Stokes
New homes will have to produce around 30% less carbon emissions from 2022, as part of a major update to the Building Regulations. The significant update provides an uplift to existing energy efficiency standards for homes and marks a steppingstone towards the introduction of the Future Homes Standard in 2025. The new Building Regulations comprise five new Approved Documents, including uplifts to Part L (fuel and power) and Part F (ventilation) and will have a marked impact on new homes and existing homes.
