Code for Sustainable Homes Assessors

The Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) is an environmental assessment method for rating and certifying the performance of new homes based on BRE Global’s EcoHomes scheme. It is a Government owned national standard intended to encourage continuous improvement in sustainable home building.

The Code for Sustainable HomesSimilar to BREEAM, the CSH covers nine categories:

  • Energy and CO2 emissions
  • Water
  • Materials
  • Surface Water Run-off
  • Waste
  • Pollution
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Management
  • Ecology

Assessments are carried out in two phases:

  • An initial assessment is carried out at the design stage. This is based on detailed documentary evidence and commitments which results in an interim certificate of compliance.
  • Final assessment and certification is carried out at the post construction stage. Based on the design stage review, this includes a confirmation of compliance, including site records and visual inspection, and results in a final certificate of compliance.

As our Code assessors have the same industry background as our BREEAM assessors, you can be assured of the high level of service that Synergy will provide to your teams.

Synergy also offer a number of services associated with CfSH assessments. For details of these please refer to the ‘Associated Services’ page.
