CHIC, a leading member owned asset management and procurement consortium, is inviting tenders for a new Healthy Homes framework, aiming to address its members needs to help resolve energy inefficiency and poor living standards in their residents’ homes. This framework will include consultants, contractors and digital solutions for sustainable, cost-effective and socially responsible retrofitting and property safety measures.
Understanding the framework
This comprehensive four-year framework encompasses a diverse range of solutions designed to enhance residential properties and improve tenants’ lives. It enables landlords to seamlessly execute retrofit energy efficiency solutions and property safety refurbishments. Through strategic collaborations with CHIC’s supply chain partners, it includes Consultancy Services, Fabric First Measures, Ventilation Systems, Renewable Energy and Heat Systems, House Refurbishment, Damp and Mould Treatments and cutting edge Digital Measuring Tools and Platforms.
Meeting a crucial market need
The requirement for this framework is underscored by the urgent market need for sustainable and socially responsible buildings that are compliant with ever changing regulatory standards. With energy inefficiency posing a significant challenge and safety concerns increasing in recent years, a structured and comprehensive approach becomes imperative. This framework serves as a bridge, aligning the needs of landlords and tenants while driving the sector towards a more sustainable future.
Compliant with PAS 2030 and 2035 and Building Safety Bill standards, it serves as a unified solution for landlords to realise their net zero emissions goals. By integrating goods, works and services, it streamlines the process of surveying, design, coordination, assessment and implementation, making sustainability and safety more attainable.
Luke Hurd, Chief Operating Officer at CHIC, said: “CHIC is delighted to be able to meet a crucial market need through our highly anticipated framework, supporting our members to champion sustainability and safety as part of their wider approach to delivering their asset management strategies. This milestone reflects our commitment to driving positive change, ensuring that every individual has access to a safe, efficient and socially responsible living environment.”
