Our philosophy of doing things the right way and not the easy way can be seen in every home we build. We care deeply about the impact of our work and the legacy we leave – creating homes and communities defined by craft, care and social responsibility. Homes that people trust and aspire to, for this generation and the next.
At Hopkins Homes, we have a responsibility and an opportunity to make our homes more sustainable. The good news is, new build homes are more energy efficient, reducing carbon emissions and saving you money. The latest ‘Watt a Save’ report by the Home Builders Federation has shown that owners of new build homes can save up to 55%* on their annual energy bills.
All of our homes have a minimum EPC rating of B, which compares to just 4% of existing UK homes and our goal is to only get better.
We want to build better, towards a greener future.
