Products that are unique to Code 4 home

The following products are ones that are unique to the Code 4 home.  They are in addition to the products listed for 'both homes'.

We have taken this opportunity to demonstrate 2 construction methods.  In terms of the construction of the superstructure, the main differences are in the wall construction, first floor construction, internal finishes, the windows and the MVHR (mechanical ventilation and heat recovery).
 
The Code 4 home is constructed using a cavity wall, a timber first floor, u-PVC windows and a MVHR.

More detail will be added to each of the sections as the homes are being built.

Fact 7

With pressure from clients, specifiers and environmentalists to account for all stages in the life cycle of construction products, the masonry industry is moving forward on responsible sourcing and addressing the issue of sustainable procurement.  There is a certified chain of custody scheme.  This will mean that sustainably-produced products can gain ‘responsibly sourced materials credits’, which are set to become commonly used in the construction industry.
