The Project

The BRE Innovation Park in Watford is home to some of the world’s finest examples of sustainable buildings, landscape design and hundreds of pioneering low carbon materials and technologies - the perfect setting to showcase the Wienerberger e4 brick house build.

Roof tile: New Rivius
Block: Porotherm 100
Brick: Chartham Multi
Solar: PV48

e4 has been designed to meet the new housing standard that the BRE is currently developing, which aims to allow developers to differentiate their product in the marketplace by recognising performance beyond minimum regulation and provide increased choice for the consumer.

The e4 brick house is the first development in the world built to this new standard, which will rate the quality, efficiency and performance of new homes.

The house being developed at the BRE Innovation Park is the three-bedroom detached design, although the concept can be used for a wide range of sizes and typologies.

BRE Business Development Director, Miles Watkins commented: “We are very pleased the e4 brick house is coming to the Innovation Park and to have it pilot our new homes standard. In the UK we have a critical need for quality, affordable, sustainable homes that can be delivered with speed. We are currently managing to deliver 125,000 housing units against the estimated 250,000 required - homes like the e4 can help us close the gap.”
