HQM performance targets
The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, states that:
‘HQM performance targets refer specifically to the HQM star rating and key performance indicators targeted. Although individually targeted HQM issues or credits may be traded over the course of the project as it evolves, it is recommended that these are targeted or prioritised to ensure that the agreed performance target is achievable, and achieved without potentially costly alterations to the design at a later stage.’
