Charles Church commits to eco-friendly homes

23rd August 2010 Print

Charles Church Southern, the luxury housebuilder, is so committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its homes in the region that it is now building properties that are up to 50 per cent more efficient than traditional houses.

Househunters with an eco-conscience can now buy a luxury new home in the confidence that it is so well insulated it can dramatically reduce energy consumption. Charles Church’s timber frame homes are built and supplied by Space4, the UK’s largest timber frame manufacturer. Each wall, floor and roof panel is constructed in a factory, which enables additional insulation to be included in the build process and it is this that reduces the level of energy wasted.

Not only does this save the planet, but it could save pounds too. With the price of household fuels rising each year, an average household could save hundreds of pounds on their fuel bills.

Chris Hagan, managing director at Space4 explains: “We use the very latest insulation techniques to ensure our homes are easy to heat and keep warm, so that the homeowner is comfortable and carbon emissions are lowered and heating bills are kept minimal. In fact, the benefits of our construction methods to the homeowner are so incredible that we have seen sales increase by 50 per cent in the last year.”

Tracey Lee, sales director at Charles Church Southern comments: “As a luxury house builder we understand that our customers want to live in homes that are not only warm and comfortable but also have a minimal impact on the environment and cost less to heat. Our Space4 timber frame homes help us to meet all of these needs while maintaining the high standard of build quality and finish that you would expect from Charles Church.”

Charles Church is currently building Space4 timber frame homes at Medway Gate in Cuxton and will be using the technology on forthcoming sites within the region.
