Kier Services to offer wall insulation under Green Deal
Thermal insulation provider Kier Services has received Green Deal authorisation from the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting.
The construction firm - which offers services like strategic asset management and energy solutions to consumers in both the public and private sector - is the newest leading organisation to be awarded the accreditation.
Under the Green Deal, homes and businesses in the UK can be fitted with a number of energy-efficient fixtures, such as draught-proofing, double-glazing and loft or cavity wall insulation, to lower annual fuel bills.
Head of energy at Kier Scott Murray said the group already has a great reputation for providing repairs and building maintenance to more than 300,000 properties.
He added the company is aiming to be at the forefront of the government initiative, "not only helping to reduce carbon emissions by fitting energy efficiency measures, but by working with customers to consider changes in their behaviour".
Kier is also due to launch an exhibition, where business representatives will have the opportunity to watch a DVD on wall insulation, flick through an archetype brochure and try out a Green Deal assessment mobile application.
