  Hanson EcoHouse™,
Watford
 
     
     
  The Hanson EcoHouse™ was the first masonry house to achieve Code Level 4 under the Code For Sustainable Homes.

The construction of the Hanson EcoHouse™ showcases an outstanding concept dwelling.

It brings together the latest developments in off-site masonry construction, thermal mass and natural ventilation in the context of the Government's voluntary code for sustainable housing introduced in April 2007.

Designed to meet the challenges of off-site construction and the impact of climate change, this concept house has been constructed using the unique Hanson QuickBuildT walling system. It provides housebuilders and developers with the advantages of quicker build times and consistent quality.

In addition, homeowners benefit from a comfortable, flexible and controlled energy use environment, using zero carbon initiatives.
