CMS Window Systems, is delighted to announce it has been successful in securing a 3 year window and door replacement contract with East Dunbartonshire Council. The £5m contract to replace energy inefficient windows and doors in domestic properties across the region will run for 3 years, until the end of December 2019, with the possibility of being extended by a further one year.
The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) aims to improve the energy efficiency of social housing in Scotland and the installation of energy efficient windows and doors is one of the methods which contributes to its achievement. Therefore from April 2017, CMS will begin manufacturing and installing A-rated for energy efficiency windows and doors across East Dunbartonshire Council’s housing stock. By helping to reduce energy consumption, fuel poverty and the emission of greenhouse gases will also be reduced which is in line with the requirements set out in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009.
All CMS windows and doors are not only A-rated for energy efficiency but also security certified by the police-approved Secured by Design initiative. A mixture of tilt & turn, casement and fully reversible CMS PVCu windows will be utilised appropriately throughout the contract and either composite or PVCu doors will also be provided. CMS is proud to play a part in bringing these improvements to homes in East Dunbartonshire as they will help to significantly reduce heat transfer, allowing residents to heat their homes at a much lower comparative cost.
Craig Reid, Contracts Director at CMS Window Systems commented: “We’re delighted to be awarded this contract from East Dunbartonshire Council as it is in recognition of our sustained effort from day one to ensure environmental, social and economic sustainability is fundamental to every part of our business. It is extremely pleasing to know we have secured another long term contract which will provide job security for our employees as well as help improve the energy efficiency of homes across East Dunbartonshire.
