With the aim of reducing our country’s carbon emissions, the Scottish Government has set a target to become a net zero economy by 2045. Steps towards this future are already being taken within the housebuilding sector, namely with the introduction of new, enhanced building regulations, the decarbonisation of new build homes by the end of 2024, and the Housing to 2040 Vision which has identified all new build homes delivered by Registered Social Landlords and local authorities are required to have zero emissions from 2026.
The rapid alignment of policy with construction resources, methods and technology will be required to meet essential targets. In response, CCG has created the Net Zero Home.
Designed within current Scottish Building Regulations under the use of the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and Dynamic Simulation Modelling, CCG has created an optimised range of house and flat types that reduce carbon emissions, arising from regulated operational energy, to a rate less than or equal to zero.
The CCG Net Zero Home is created using an innovative mix of construction and building services:
Working in partnership with MAST Architects and Carbon Futures, the resultant capability of the CCG Net Zero Home offers a practical, affordable and scalable approach to residential development whilst delivering vastly improved energy savings for tenants and homeowners alike.
A more sustainable and progressive future for Scotland:
The CCG Net Zero Home. The home of the future, today.
