The Home Quality Mark (HQM) was launched by the BRE in 2015 as a consumer orientated comparison tool, that provides a star rating as well as ‘Quality Indicators’ about a newly built dwelling.
This new assessment will enable house builders to demonstrate the high quality of their homes and to differentiate them in the marketplace. By providing impartial information from independent experts on a new home’s quality, HQM clearly indicates overall expected costs, health and wellbeing benefits, and environmental footprint associated with living in the home. In short, HQM helps everyone to fully understand the quality, performance and attributes of a new-build home.
