Contract Award for energy efficiency pilot project via the Procurement for Housing Framework

We are seeking approval to undertake a pilot project at Philpot Square to upgrade the building fabric and the communal heating from gas to air source heat pump (electric). We seek to use the Procurement for Housing Framework (Lot 4- Renewables) to appoint a capable supplier.

The works will increase energy efficiency, reduce energy bills and retrofit Philpot Square to become one of H&Fs first ‘net zero ready’ blocks.

Residents will also be given full control over how they heat their properties and individual billing will be enabled to ensure subsequent costs are charged fairly.

The total cost of the project will be circa £4.2million. Up to £1million of grant funding is also being applied for to support this cost.
