The energy and water savings commitments for home Alterations & Additions are;
40% of all new light fittings must be of new technology (energy saving).
All new plumbing installations must have a minimum rating of 3 stars.
All new walls, ceilings, floors and roofs are assessed and likely to be insulated.
