Sustainability & Energy Saving Measures and Advice

Sustainable Property Management

The Future Of Property Management Has Arrived

Heating and powering the UK’s 25 million homes accounts for more CO2 emissions than any other sector, even vehicle emissions.  Sustainability now features heavily in the future of all new housing in the UK, especially major city centres where certain levels of attainment through the sustainable design code are required to gain planning permission.  Renewable and low-energy methods of heating and powering the home are here to stay and their importance continues to grow.

As such, greener design features are not just shaping the future of property management, but have played a major part of it for some time.  Realty have many years experience managing such features and we have built a broad range of first-hand expertise that has not only helped to reduce emissions but has also saved our customers many thousands of pounds.  The benefits of sustainability not only come in the form of lower emissions and cost savings though, but also through community engagement, the preservation of wildlife, and reductions in waste.

Realty have successfully introduced energy saving measures into the majority of the developments under our care, from the humble low-energy lightbulb to retrofitting solar power and electric vehicle charging.  We are pleased to offer advice on selecting the right energy saving measures including any possible RHI payments and also the lifespan and sustainability of the future management of these features.
