Emanuel Whittaker and Salix Homes to collaborate on Green Deal Pilot

Jan 18, 2012

Following good foresight to embrace challenges of Green Deal, Emanuel Whittaker will be working in conjunction with Salix Homes on a number of eco retrofit projects within Salford to pilot PAS 2030. Lessons from the learning and sharing trial will be captured through a joint Emanuel Whittaker/Salix project blog from February 2012.

Matt Roberts at Salix commented “This pilot is an excellent opportunity to work with our partners to ensure they are committed to providing a skilled and energy aware workforce, which will help us deliver against energy efficiency targets now and in the future. It will also provide valuable lessons in advance of the Green Deal going live, giving added reassurances of both quality and service.

Clive Newton at Emanuel Whittaker “Green Deal is an excellent fit for Emanuel Whittaker, enabling us to bring our vast experience of quality and traditional skills into a modern green building environment alongside our valued clients and supply chain Green Deal is a continuation of our commitment and progress to becoming a truly green builder, following naturally from achieving ISO 14001 last year and our Construction Carbon initiative to monitor and reduce carbons using the ConstructCO2 tool”.

Green Deal is the Governments flagship initiative to address energy performance of buildings in the UK. It will deliver a potentially huge volume of eco refit work to homes and business premises commencing in 2012. PAS 2030 is the stringent standard to which all Green Deal installers will be required to become accredited to by autumn 2012 to be part of the Green Deal and other eco retrofit projects.

Emanuel Whittaker initiated a robust Green Deal preparation and delivery strategy early in 2011 with preparation activities across the whole of the business, that includes awareness training for all staff, tool box talks for sites, a review of quality and environmental system to meet the necessary PAS 2030 accreditation early in the new year, in addition to reviewing and addressing the energy performance of their premises.
