Housing providers are facing mountainous sustainability targets. All social properties must achieve a standard assessment procedure (SAP) rating of D by 2025, C by 2030 and they must reach net zero by 2050.
As a procurement services provider dedicated to social housing, Inprova is helping providers to meet these targets in the most effective and efficient way.
One way is through our partnership with Building Better, an alliance of 30 housing associations and local authorities increasing the use of modern methods of construction (MMC).
Through our Building Better framework, we’re supporting housing organisations to develop new homes that meet sustainability standards from day one, without the need for future upgrades. Homes built through the framework are EPC band B and above, with no gas connection and can quickly meet the government’s ‘zero carbon ready’ Future Homes Standard.
But Inprova isn’t just reducing emissions through new builds. A significant 80% of the homes we will be occupying in 2050 already exist. That means retrofitting current stock must be a priority and our teams are working hard to support social landlords through a range of frameworks covering Renewables, Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing Two (EESSH2) in Scotland and Social Housing Emerging Disruptors (SHED) – which helps providers to procure innovative retrofit technology.
