SWPA launches procurement guide for Energy Efficiency Works
SWPA has launched a new guide for local authorities, housing associations and other registered providers that are looking to procure energy efficiency works.
The new guide from SWPA provides details of its £800m Energy Efficiency Measures and Associated Works (N8) framework, which runs until 8 November 2024.
The framework provides for the installation of 21 different energy efficiency works, across three project value bands, and two work streams based on procurement of either individual or multiple measures. Both domestic and public buildings are catered for.
Energy efficiency works delivered by the framework include a range of insulation types, heat pumps, solar PV, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, electric heaters and district heating interfaces.
Dean Fazackerley, group procurement manager, said: “Local authorities and other social landlords will be all too aware of the work that needs to be done to decarbonise the country’s existing housing and public building stock, and will want to ensure they meet this challenge in an efficient way that provides value-for-money.
“This framework’s pre-approved suppliers can do just that, and SWPA’s team of in-house technical expertise will be able to help procurement teams through every step of the process.
“Contracting authorities can also use our Energy Efficiency Consultancy N8C framework, which complements N8, to procure suppliers across the full lifecycle of a project, from stock audit to installation of measures.”
Alongside additional information the N8 framework guide lists all the companies appointed to the framework and the project values for the region.
