Residential house builder Abel Homes has been a leader in sustainability for much of the 30 years it has been building new homes across Norfolk. The firm has built its success around a concept it calls ‘Liveability’, recognising that the way people use their homes and live in them should guide the product – and increasingly energy-efficiency and sustainability have been important factors in translating that concept into reality. 

Abel Homes

Currently Abel Homes is the only mid-sized house builder in Norfolk building EPC ‘A’ rated homes. The firm has for many years pioneered the use of technologies which are starting to become mainstream: solar panels, triple glazing and heat pumps, for example. That sustainability also forms a part of how the homes are built, reducing their long-term impact on the environment by using local suppliers and a local workforce, using electric vehicles on its sites, and installing photovoltaic solar panels at its head office.

As such measures begin to be adopted more widely in the market, Abel Homes is staying ahead of the competition, bringing its customers the latest in sustainable solutions and technology for their new homes. The focus on, and investment in, staying ahead of the market when it comes to sustainability is a big part of Abel Homes’ excellent reputation and of its business success – as well as delivering on the founder’s vision to build homes in a better way.
