We build greener, healthier homes

When we build our homes, we have a few principles in mind to make sure we build responsibly and invest in the future.

Your new home will be energy efficient

We carefully consider how to design our homes to be energy efficient. Sustainable features can be seen throughout our homes, from high quality insulated roofs, walls, and windows, through to energy efficient appliances, zoned heating systems and water saving taps. Our new build homes come with a smaller carbon footprint than an equivalent second-hand property, which is great news for the planet and means lower energy bills for you, with an average saving of £2,200 a year*

You’ll save on energy bills

Data from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) found that buyers of a new build home will save on average £2,200 a year in energy bills, with new build homes built from 2023 will emit 39% of the amount of carbon of the average older property.

New homes significantly reduce household energy usage, with the average new home using approximately 103KwH per m2 per year compared with older properties which require an average of 242KwH per m2.*

Your new community will have character

Each Taylor Wimpey neighbourhood is unique, with its own character and identity. But each one is designed to our rigorous standards. You’ll benefit from well connected streets and public spaces, easy access to transport and, on many sites, local shops, schools and community hubs.

At larger schemes we include different housing styles to add character and often we match our layout and materials to reflect the local landscape and traditions.

You can connect with nature

Being near to nature can give our spirits a lift, and recent research shows it has a positive impact on our health. We want to help you get out and enjoy nature, so we’re putting wildlife and green space at the centre of our development planning. 

We launched our ‘Home for Nature’ toolkit to help us do just that. It’s full of ideas that we’re implementing on our sites from planting wildflower meadows, to integrating hedgerows, trees and ponds, and installing bird boxes and hedgehog highways.
