Caring for the Environment
Leading Sustainable Developments
Housing has a significant impact on the environment with around 25% of the UK’s carbon emissions being generated in our homes. On average in Britain, £1 in every £3 spent on energy in the home is wasted immediately. However, at Countryside Maritime we have an excellent track record in building high quality new homes that are highly energy and water efficient.
We are also widely recognised for creating developments that are environmentally and socially sustainable. This is great for our customers financially and it’s good for the environment too.
As a leader in sustainable development we recognize that innovative, responsible development creates added value and is fundamental to our future. Countryside Maritime is totally committed to sustainable development.
We ensure that environmental considerations are incorporated into the planning and design of all our developments. We also ensure that the landscapes we create integrate with and enhance the surrounding natural and built environment. During construction we adhere to the principles of best construction practice and good neighbourliness through the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
