Constructing Excellence in Wales continues to work with new house builders across Wales. We remain determined to see that best practice continues to be adopted and are delighted to be hosting this workshop bringing new resources to support the industry.

Hear from the authors of two new publications, one on costing energy efficient homes from planning through to handover. The second publication provides case study feedback on ventilation systems in new homes. Presentations will introduce the two publications and provide delegates with an opportunity for discussions with the speakers.

The “cost efficiency guide” provides a step-by-step guide for SME housebuilders on building energy efficient homes cost effectively.

The “ventilation in new homes” publication presents a reflection on the ventilation systems currently being installed in new homes. The team visited 33 dwellings across 6 construction sites in 2015 to see how effectively their mechanical ventilation systems were designed, installed, commissioned and handed over to occupants. The publication is intended for organisations with an interest in quality assuring the delivery of ventilation systems, including clients, developers and their advisers.

A third presentation will then outline the NHBC’s ‘Construction Quality Review’ initiative.
