Established in 1976, Sustainable Building Services (UK) Ltd has been at the forefront of residential energy efficiency and decarbonisation for decades.
We have decades of experience of delivering multi-measure energy-efficiency works to thousands of occupied mixed-tenure homes each year, including vulnerable households.
Before the introduction of PAS2030 and PAS2035, we campaigned for and supported the prioritisation of whole-house, multi-measure decarbonisation schemes and promoted the value of the resulting economies of scale, which boost community-wide impacts and help to accelerate progress in the battle against fuel-poverty.
In recent years, we have consciously adapted our business to respond to the requirements of PAS2035 and are now one of the UK’s leading specialist turnkey providers and contractors delivering large-scale decarbonisation retrofit projects.
Today, we are a team of dynamic and experienced multi-disciplinary professionals. We are one of several related companies that share a common goal: helping to alleviate fuel poverty and improving people’s living standards, health and wellbeing. These companies include:
In addition to our head office in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, we have additional regional offices that are supported by depots, site offices, training facilities and customer-support centres across the UK.
