Following a tender exercise, AgilityEco was selected by Portsmouth City Council to advise them on a range of energy issues, ranging from stock assessment, identification of ECO funding opportunities across their stock and planned maintenance schedules, appointment of contractors and the delivery of energy efficiency improvements, managing the end-to-end supply chain and associated compliance.
We combined our technical and commercial know-how to deliver innovative, cost effective energy saving projects for Portsmouth City Council, providing a full end-to-end service from initial consultation and advice, right through to surveying, solution design, funding, delivery and compliance.
Our approach to each of these steps was methodical and rigorous, enabling Portsmouth City Council to maximise the energy reduction improvements they could deliver.
AgilityEco project managed the whole programme, which involved:
The strategy devised for Portsmouth City Council is worth in the region of £2.3m consisting of the following:
• Specification of full retrofit works to improve the energy efficiency of two priority high-rise buildings, whilst improving durability and maintenance costs
• Identification of other opportunities for Portsmouth City Council to optimise ECO funding across their housing stock such as hard-to-treat cavity wall properties and the installation of “secondary” energy efficiency measures
• An accurate forecast of the ECO carbon credits available from providing energy efficiency measures to these properties as well as indicative costings
• A feasible, transparent project which provided best value to Portsmouth City Council.
Portsmouth City Council has worked closely with AgilityEco on a number of projects over the last 12 months and we have been very impressed by their ability to bring our community energy reduction programmes to life, as well as helping us to deliver them effectively. Their knowledge of the funding landscape, potential partners, sources of expertise and proactivity have been invaluable. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them to drive further improvements for the ongoing benefit of our residents.
