Our Values

01

Planet

Our planet is in crisis, and now is the time to act. The future is at the forefront of every decision made at Hemspan®. We will continue developing products that benefit the planet and alleviate the problems that the building and construction industry contribute to climate change.

39% of all carbon emissions in the world are caused by the building and construction industry. 28% of these emissions come from the energy used to heat, cool and light buildings; the remaining 11% are from carbon associated with the materials and construction processes throughout the whole building life cycle.

In the UK, 45% of the total carbon emissions are produced by the construction environment. The average new-build house emits 50 to 60 tonnes from the manufacture, transport and assembly of the materials, known as Embodied Carbon. The operational emissions of this house will emit a further 5 tonnes of CO2 on average per year. Thus, a new house could emit around 200 tonnes of CO2 by 2050. ​

People

Hemspan® designs and builds fit for purpose, creating beautiful, sustainable homes for the future, with people and our modern way of life in mind. ​

According to UK Government statistics, in 2020, the average electricity bill across all payment types was £707, and gas was around £557.

According to a USGBC report, green buildings can reduce carbon emissions by up to 34%, consume less energy and lower operating costs, with 63% less water usage and 53% less electricity usage. 

In addition to reduced operational costs, the elimination of thermal bridging provides an airtight home, maintaining a comfortable temperature in all weathers. ​

03

Purpose

As the future of construction, Hemspan® will advocate, advance and realise the buildings of tomorrow. With natural materials, we can help change the face of construction, making the industry cleaner and greener, taking it closer to the 2050 net-zero emissions target faster.
