Sustainable Building Services awarded Solid Wall Insulation Contract by Rykneld Homes
Sustainable Building Services (SBS) has been awarded a prestigious Solid Wall Insulation contract by Rykneld Homes. Valued at approximately £1 million, SBS have been appointed to supply external wall insulation (ewi) and related services to 169 REEMA properties in Grassmoor, Chesterfield. The work is being undertaken on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council and it will be part-financed by the Energy Company Obligation.
Surveys, Repairs and External Wall Insulation
The work will include surveys and repairs prior to the fitting of an external wall insulation system designed and manufactured by PermaRock Products Limited. Works will also entail asbestos removal, replacement of roofline and rainwater goods, adaptations for central heating vents and windows, and the installation of new canopies over front doors. Another important element will be the management of ECO funding.
SBS Represent Best Value
Rykneld Homes scored each contractor’s bid on the basis of quality and price, and determined that the SBS proposal represented best value.
SBS is already working extensively across the Midlands, so this announcement further consolidates the company’s presence in the region. In 2017, it was ranked first for quality on a four-year solid wall insulation framework managed by Efficiency East Midlands, and in April 2018, Derby Homes Limited named SBS as its number one-ranked supplier for external wall insulation services under its 4-year Insulation Installations Framework. SBS has also recently delivered award-winning projects for Chesterfield Borough Council and Nottingham City Homes.
Operating as main contractor, SBS is also delivering energy efficiency, new build and refurbishment works in the North West, North and South Wales and throughout the UK.
Commenting on this latest contract award, SBS Commercial Director Gary Lawson said:
“Judging by recent announcements, SBS has become the contractor of choice for major energy efficiency works in the Midlands and beyond. We are working with clients such as Nottingham City Homes and Broxtowe Borough Council, and we’re consistently achieving top scores on both price and quality. That’s especially important to us because, fundamentally, delivering best value is what we’re all about. ”
SBS operates UK-wide. More information about the company can be found on the Sustainable Building Services website.
