NIA Introduces New Service for Local Authorities and Housing Associations

With the cuts to the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) announced by Government last year, an increasing number of Local Authorities and Housing Associations are now unable to secure ECO funding for insulation programmes and are therefore funding these from their own budgets - as a result we are increasingly being contacted by them asking for our help in finding local installers to carry out work on their behalf.

In response to these requests the National Insulation Association (NIA) is pleased to announce the introduction of a new service for Local Authorities and Housing Associations looking for insulation companies to work on their projects. They can provide us with details of these  projects and we will then issue expressions of interest and tender requests on their behalf to our members through our electronic communication system.  This provides the benefit of avoiding the need to contact lots of different companies and is immediate.

The NIA is the lead trade body for insulation measures in the UK representing manufacturers and installers of cavity wall, external wall, internal wall, roof and loft insulation and draught proofing and therefore our members can provide multi measure solutions.  In addition, NIA  members are required to meet our robust membership criteria and adhere to our strict code of professional practice and therefore using our members provides additional reassurance and peace of mind.

If you would like to use this service please email or telephone Bev Hodson at NIA bev.hodson@nia-uk.org   01525 383313
