Chancellor announces Future Homes Standard

On 13th March Chancellor Philip Hammond spoke of fulfilling the aspirations of the next generation in terms of Housing and the environment.

In his speech the Chancellor announced “a new £3 billion Affordable Homes Guarantee scheme, to support delivery of around 30,000 affordable homes”. This will come as welcome news to those waiting to take their first step on the property ladder.

The Chancellor continued, with the announcement of “a Future Homes Standard, mandating the end of fossil-fuel heating systems in all new houses from 2025, aimed at “delivering lower carbon – and lower fuel bills too”.

The Future Homes Standard offers exciting opportunities for energy efficiency systems such as the Showersave. Showersave will reduce the demand for energy, specifically domestic hot water, as a result of recovering the energy we throw down the drain while showering.

Showersave first introduced the concept of waste water heat recovery to the UK market more than ten years ago and with the Government’s focus on delivering lower carbon and lower fuel bills made clear today, our ambitious vision to have Showersave installed in every new build by 2020, may soon start becoming a reality.

Showersave has become a talking point with Consulting Engineers

Since the introduction of Waste water heat recovery into SBEM on 3rd October 2018, Showersave MultiVert has become a talking point with many Consulting Engineers throughout the UK.

This highly anticipated addition to SBEM has unveiled an array of opportunities for consultants to deliver cost effective designs for their clients.

Showersave MultiVert recovers excess heat energy from waste water, which would otherwise be lost down the drain. This energy is then used to pre-heat incoming cold water, a wonderfully simple, yet highly effective addition to any non-residential building.

In buildings with multiple showers this saving can be significant and the benefits to a BREEAM assessment can be considerable allowing designers to offset more costly technologies.

Having worked with many of the UK’s leading house builders for more than ten years, we are delighted to finally have our MultiVert system recognised in SBEM.

Showersave is the only UK Company offering both residential and commercial scale WWHR applications

Join Showersave at Explore Offsite Housing on 10th-11th April

The Explore Offsite Housing conference and supporting exhibition is taking place on 10 & 11 April 2018. The nation’s media has been reporting on a UK housing crisis for many months, but is there now a climate for change in the industry? Experts have hailed offsite construction as the only way to respond to the demand for new housing. Moving the construction of houses into factories enables the build to take place both efficiently and economically, making the national shortage of labour less of a concern.    For those in the construction sector with fresh ideas and innovative technologies, this nationwide crisis has the potential to change the norm which governs the ways new homes are built.

Explore Offsite Housing will be taking place on 10 & 11 2018. To view the full conference line-up, visit: http://www.exploreoffsite.co.uk/2018-events/explore-offsite-housing/conference-speakers/ Tickets cost just £225 + vat for a two-day ticket and £125 + vat for a one ticket. This ticket price includes entry into the conference and exhibition, lunch and refreshments. To book your place, visit: http://www.exploreoffsite.co.uk/book/

Join us at Social Housing Conference, Manchester, 25th January 2018

 

Social Housing Conference: Fixing the broken market

 

Showersave will join a panel of experts at the Social Housing Conference where experts from across the sector will explain how the UK can deliver affordable housing to meet growing demand.

“In those parts of the country where the need is greatest, [we will] allow homes to be built for social rent, well below market level. Getting government back into the business of building houses, a new generation of council houses to help fix our broken housing market.” – Prime Minister Theresa May

Britain is building 60,000 too few houses a year, creating an affordability crisis that has had a disproportionate impact on younger people.

Just 6,800 new homes are built for social rent each year while the number of new affordable homes has been halved. In response, the Government has published a white paper on “Fixing our broken housing market” and set aside £9 billion for its Affordable Homes Programme. Local authorities in areas with the greatest shortages have been encouraged to bid for money to build new homes for social rent.

In the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, social landlords are under increased scrutiny and must ensure their properties meet the highest standards. At a time when resources are scarce, landlords face a difficult financial choice between maintaining existing housing stock and delivering the new affordable homes the UK needs. Find out more here.
