Home Quality Mark

Residential Security

Developed by BRE in accordance with BREEAM, the home quality mark provides independent impartial information on new homes. Its aim is to promote the design of residential property and sites to promote security where crime and fear of crime does not undermine the quality of living.

There are a maximum of 10 credits available for security within the scheme. It starts with a security needs assessment, follows through to the implementation of the identified needs. The process must be completed by a suitably qualified security specialist (SQSS), in liaison with the local Police Architectural Liaison Officer or the Crime Prevention Adviser. The needs follow closely the requirements of secure by design, a concept that is in the forefront of our security solutions. We can provide the SQSS and develop the SNA to ensure the achievement of the available credits.
