Future Homes Standard
The UK has to reach net-zero carbon goals by 2050, therefore it is very important that new homes achieve greater carbon neutrality. The UK government has announced a Future Homes Standard which is taking effect in England from 2025. This will be a key part of the construction industries framework going forward. The target is to reduce carbon emissions by minimum of 75% when comparing with existing levels. The Future Homes Standard will update Part L of the Building Regulations for new homes in England.

I can safely say that THERMOHOUSE is the BEST company that I have used.
As a company, we’re not new to Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF). We’ve used other brands in the past and done a lot of research into ICF. With that in mind, I not only found the product great, but the team of installers and management made my day to day life a lot less stressful than it could have been. Aside from the product itself, I also found the build time and minimal disruption to the neighbours a massive benefit. I look forward to working with Thermohouse again soon.
“The most positive thing about using Thermohouse is the Speed of building erection and precision of overall installation with no vertical or horizontal distortion that is sometimes a symptom of other EPS products.
Thermohouse has great ease of production methodology, is time and cost saving with a single source supply and install for all three elements. It took less time detailing the various construction elements”.
“The construction is fairly straight forward with Thermohouse providing materials and labour. We like the structure of the block but the selling point was that Thermohouse supply and build. The construction is fairly straight forward with Thermohouse providing materials and labour. Speed sustainability and sales price were among some of the goals we were trying to achieve. Traditional build is very noisy, dirty and slow whilst ICF is quiet clean and fast. It allows you to get to lock up quicker and start to work inside. Traditional is the opposite. The end product was good so this can only help our reputation. Also, speed is key to cash flow”.
