New service seeks to bring installers and housing work together

niaThe National Insulation Association (NIA) has launched a new service designed to help local authorities and housing associations find insulation companies to work on their projects.

Following cuts to the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) announced in 2014, NIA says an increasing number of local councils and housing associations are now unable to secure ECO funding for their insulation programmes and are therefore funding projects from their own budgets. As a result of this, the NIA is increasingly being contacted for help in finding local installers to carry out work on their behalf.


Neil Marshall, chief executive of the NIA, said:

“Local authorities and housing associations can provide us with the details of their 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 and our members can provide multi measure solutions. In addition, our members are required to meet our robust membership criteria and adhere to our strict code of professional practice meaning our members provide additional reassurance and peace of mind.”
