Meeting the Home Quality Mark

The Home Quality Mark was launched by BRE on 3 March 2015. Compliance with HQM enables home builders to demonstrate the high-quality of their homes in order to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. It will also secure compliance with the requirements of the Building Regulations. Homebuyers have the confidence that any new home built to the Home Quality Mark is well-designed, well-built and cost-effective to run:

Demonstrate building to a quality and sustainable standard

Produce high-quality homes

Differentiate your homes from less efficient rivals

Give homebuyers confidence to invest

Potential insurance and mortgage interest rate incentives for homebuyers

Comply with planning conditions in the Building Regulations

Home Quality Mark

“Our holistic approach blends performance and compliance to ensure homes meet the HQM sustainability standard. We work with you from initial advice to full assessment, tailored to each project.”

Rob Waiting, Principal Sustainability Consultant

Measuring the Home Quality Mark

Overall home ratings are based on a simple scale of 1 to 5 stars. The rating is compiled from three assessment areas:

Knowledge sharing: ensuring designers, constructors, clients and householders are aware of sustainable processes and solutions

Our surroundings: assesses how well a home works with the environment and responds to population changes and climate fluctuations

My home: rewards cost-effective and healthy living spaces
