UK Optimised Retrofit Installations

The social housing sector is under pressure to reduce its carbon footprint and tackle fuel poverty, while also ensuring the comfort and wellbeing of tenants. Retrofitting existing housing stock is a key solution to meet these challenges and many social housing providers are embarking on retrofit programmes to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, retrofitting is a complex process that requires a wide range of skills and expertise, from initial assessment and design to installation and commissioning.

To navigate this complexity, social housing providers need a compliant route to market that offers a comprehensive range of services, ensuring that retrofit projects are delivered to the highest standards and achieve the expected outcomes. CHIC’s UK Optimised Retrofit Dynamic Purchasing System for Installations provides just such a solution. The system is divided into five lots, each offering a different set of services, from fabric insulation and ventilation to heating and renewables. By using this procurement solution, our members can access a wide range of qualified suppliers and contractors with the necessary skills and experience to deliver high quality retrofit projects. This means that landlords can focus their time and resources on other aspects of their business, such as tenant engagement and community development, while also ensuring that their housing stock is fit for purpose and future proofed.
