Sustainability

Skillcrown is committed to developing sustainable, environmentally-friendly homes. We are always looking for ways to improve our construction techniques and minimise the impact on the community and the environment.

Energy efficient light fittings, renewable energy installations, low water consumption sanitary fittings, rainwater attenuation and harvesting tanks, are just some of the features you will find in a Skillcrown home. All of which means our new homes generate 60% less carbon emissions than older homes, saving you, the home owner, money. Plus, our innovative designs and ecology enhancements, such as bird boxes, planting and careful timber sourcing, create the sort of environment you want to live in.

Skillcrown has partnered with renewable energy specialist, Ecolution on numerous projects, installing Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal systems, and is committed to helping you maintain energy-efficiency through rated appliances and a guide to responsible purchasing.

Skillcrown fully supports the Code for Sustainable Homes and works hard to ensure high levels are attained. It has also received ‘very good’ and ‘excellent’ ratings from the BRE on all current developments.
