Code for Sustainable Homes Assessment

Encon Associates are able to deliver the aims of BREEAM’s Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) by providing guidance on the construction of high performance homes built with sustainability in mind.

Our assessors use their extensive knowledge of the code and the construction industry as a whole to provide expert regulation of your project.

As code assessors we’ve delivered schemes to a minimum of Code Level 3 and are ideally placed to assess your scheme to the new mandatory minimum levels of performance across issues including:

  • Energy efficiency /CO2
  • Water efficiency 
  • Surface water management 
  • Site Waste Management
  • Household Waste Management
  • Use of Materials

CSH assessment phases

Code assessments are carried out in two phases:

  • An initial assessment and interim certification is carried out at the design stage
  • Final assessment and certification is carried out after construction (see below)

We also offer a Pre-Assessment service to assess the environmental impact of your proposed development prior to work commencing on site.

Additional CSH credit service

As well as offering code assessment services, Encon Associates are able to offer many additional design and advisory services to help your development achieve your desired Code Level including:

IES TaP for Code for Sustainable Homes

When using Encon Associates as your Code assessor, the IES TaP for CSH tracking system will be used throughout the project to provide evidence tracking, project management, progress reporting.

You can read more about IES TaP and the benefits it brings to your your CSH project.
