Frameworx approved decarbonisation suppliers are ready and waiting to help housing providers deliver Net Zero

Frameworx, the new procurement framework that is committed to investing in social value and communities, recently announced its extensive framework of approved providers on its Planned Maintenance Framework for Net Zero Carbon Works.

With the recent release of Wave 2.1 of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), the timing of the framework launch could not be better.

David Miller, Frameworx Director commented: “Whilst we all welcome the necessary funding to help cut emissions of homes across England, it will involve challenges. Government’s £3.8bn SHDF over 10 years is allowing social housing landlords to invest to improve the energy efficiency of their housing stock.

“Retrofitting is one of the most critical climate problems to solve, contributing 20% of the UK’s carbon emissions. It’s also one of the biggest engineering challenges that UK has ever faced and will only be successful if as a sector, the supply chain works collaboratively. If you’re a social housing landlord who has successfully secured SHDF funding, you will need to work with providers who can efficiently and effectively work with you to deliver your decarbonisation and retrofit programmes.

“Tight timescales are involved. The grant must be drawn down and expended by 31st March 2025, with works completed by 30 September 2025. In order to meet deadlines, landlords need to be working with their providers now to survey overall stock energy performance and recommend properties to put forward for the retrofit works on a fabric first principle. The sooner the process begins the better the outcome, especially against the backdrop of a tight labour market.

“The good news is that Frameworx providers are ready and waiting to help. Representing some of the best providers for energy efficiency improvements, with the appropriate certifications to deliver eligible measures, e.g. Trustmark or equivalent accredited, with relevant MCS standard certification to achieve the required PAS 2035:2019 specification, you are not alone. We offer efficiencies and economies of scale, through both traditional framework approaches and Dynamic Purchasing Systems. One of the biggest points of difference is the way housing providers can procure: both direct award and mini-competition are available as potential call off methods.

“The earlier the procurement process starts the better the outcomes for successful contract delivery, value for money, smooth, fully-resourced programme delivery — and ultimately, the planet.”
