Housing Executive awards £336m contract to upgrade housing stock heating systems
THE Housing Executive has announced a new £336 million contract to upgrade the heating systems of all its housing stock in the north.
In one of its largest ever contracts awarded for the delivery of heating services, Housing Executive tenants will also be provided with a comprehensive heating response maintenance service to include the servicing, repair and installation of all types of its systems to the entire housing stock.
The contract, which began in November, has been awarded to three different companies, who will cover the different areas of Northern Ireland. H&A Mechanical Service will cover the south west, Carillion Energy Services will work in Belfast, while Greenview Gas will fulfil the contract obligations in the south. The major contract will potentially run up to eight years, until 2025.
Housing Executive director of asset management, Paul Isherwood said the contract is a clear indication of its commitment to delivery quality service to all tenants.
“This contract will help tackle fuel poverty, by providing efficient heating systems for our tenants across Northern Ireland."
“Through our contract management processes, we will ensure that the services delivered will meet the required quality and performance. We are confident the partners chosen will carry out the work to a high standard and deliver excellent customer satisfaction."
The significant investment from the Housing Executive is not only improving people's homes but also delivering quality services to our tenants," he said.

“We look forward to working with the Housing Executive in tackling fuel poverty and building on the long term relationships established over many years.”
