kWh/year Household Energy Savings
Sustainable Building Services is one of the UK’s largest providers of retrofit residential decarbonisation works. Working with social housing and private residential property, we manage and deliver large-scale energy efficiency, low-carbon technology and whole-house retrofit schemes to MCS / PAS 2030 and PAS 2035 Standards.
Experience spanning decades
We were one of the first UK contractors to deliver PAS2035-compliant schemes at scale, and to take an area-based approach, blending funding across mixed-tenures to maximise impact across communities.
Our work improves the health, comfort, and well-being of thousands of mixed-tenure households each year, whilst helping address issues relating to fuel-poverty, the cost-of-living crisis, and to help reduce their energy consumption, and carbon emissions. All of this contributing towards the UK meeting its net zero targets.
We deliver projects through all decarbonisation and energy efficiency / low-carbon funding streams. Where possible, we blend funding on a project-by-project and/or dwelling-by-dwelling basis, to increase uptake and maximise impact across an area or region:
- Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF)
- Home Upgrade Grant (HUG)
- Energy Company Obligation (ECO)
- Client funded projects
As a turnkey provider, we can take responsibility for the end-to-end retrofit journey. We provide surety to clients and stakeholders that all aspects and stages of their decarbonisation projects will be delivered in compliance with TrustMark requirements and the demands of specific funding schemes.
In addition to retrofit decarbonisation project delivery, our services include stock / asset and funding management, mixed tenure / private home acquisition, retrofit assessment / coordination / design services, and EEM / MCS installation.
Collaboration and Expertise
Our approach to decarbonisation project management is based around full collaboration; working in partnership with project stakeholders. This is crucial when developing, planning, managing and delivering decarbonisation projects at scale.
To support this approach, we have specifically developed a network of trusted suppliers and partners, including PAS 2035 service providers and energy efficiency / low-carbon technology installers. They complement our in-house capacity and capabilities, enabling us to mobilise retrofit projects within industry-leading timeframes.
This also allows us to support, identify and maximise funding for clients whilst, importantly, ensuring projects are delivered in compliance with standards, funding requirements and deadlines.
The success of our approach was recently recognised via the retrofit decarbonisation sector’s most acclaimed national accolade, The Retrofit Academy’s Retrofit Contractor of the Year Award. This endorses excellence at scale, meeting PAS 2035 principles, consistent delivery of high-quality resident engagement, innovation, high-quality whole-house retrofit projects, and providing career pathways within the retrofit sector.
Energy Efficiency and Decarbonisation Frameworks
We are listed on many nationwide and regional energy efficiency, retrofit, whole-house and decarbonisation frameworks. Many registered social housing providers have directly appointed us due to our experience and large-scale delivery capabilities.
