Build better new builds with sustainable solutions

Choosing the right products for new-builds isn’t just important in creating more comfortable homes, it will also become crucial in meeting upcoming changes to regulations. If you’re unsure of what this means, we've outlined some key products below to think about when working on new builds. In addition, read through the blogs on this page, where we’ll talk you through the products that can help you meet these requirements for new-builds.

New builds
1. Soundcoat Plus

Gypsum-based parge coat to improve the thermal and acoustic performance of masonry walls before lining with Gyproc acoustic boards.

2. UNOhab

This type of system provides constant fresh filtered air into a building while retaining most of the energy that has already been used in heating the building. This kind of system can extract and recycle any warmth in the outgoing air by transferring it into the new supply - optimising the climate in the home.

3. Gyproc SoundBloc Plasterboard

It is a plasterboard with a higher density sound insulating core, enables the wall, partition and ceiling system to provide greater sound insulation performance over standard products by reducing the transmission of sound between rooms.

4. PipeSnug

Compliant with Part L of the Build Regulations. PipeSnug is quicker and cleaner than mortar at sealing holes created when installing pipe work from the inside out.

5. Heat pumps

This type of heating system lives on the ground outside or on a sunny wall and takes in heat from outside air. This can then be used to heat hot water, radiators or underfloor heating. They can work all-year round, even when temperatures are down to -15°C.

6. Solar PV

Solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity that you can use in the home. By installing solar PV for your clients they are able to generate their own renewable electricity.

9. Internal floor insulation

The primary purpose of an internal floor is to provide acoustic separation for airborne sound between two adjacent rooms within a dwelling, thereby improving the acoustic comfort of those within the dwelling
