In 2017 it will have been 15 years since the Stroma Group was founded. As part of our celebration we are taking a look back into our news archive to bring you one story from the past. This article goes back to January 2008 when Stroma Certification was awarded a license to provide Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) certification for assessors.
The Code for Sustainable Homes was introduced in 2006 to monitor the performance of new homes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It was initially a voluntary standard which assessed the sustainability of a new dwelling against key criteria including CO2 emissions, ecology and waste.
In 2008, Stroma Certification had embarked on a programme of expansion in our service catalogue to ensure energy assessors were equipped with the skills to respond to changes in regulation and provide a compliant service in energy assessment.
Our CSH scheme continues to certify a large number of energy assessors today, even following the Government’s decision to end Code in 2015. We have seen demand for CSH certification and CSH assessments (via Stroma Tech) continue to perform strongly in the past year.
Steve Marriott, Code for Sustainable Homes scheme manager, said: "Stroma Certification was one of the first certification bodies to attain the license to operate a CSH scheme and I’m proud to have led the scheme over the past eight years. As a business, Stroma is committed to our CSH scheme and in providing new services to ensure energy assessors can compete in our every-changing industry."”"
