Contractor gets thumbs up for green installations

THE parent company of Scarborough’s leading maintenance contractor has won accreditation to install eco-friendly technology.

Willmott Dixon Partnerships has received full accreditation as an approved installer for a range of micro-generation technologies under the Micro-generation Certification Scheme.

The accreditation will allow Willmott Dixon’s qualified trades people to install and maintain micro-generation technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources.

Willmott Dixon Partnerships currently works with Yorkshire Coast Homes on a £3.2 million contract to repair and maintain 4,500 homes in Scarborough and Whitby.

The accreditation will enable the company to upgrade properties which would benefit from energy-saving measures including better insulation, solar panels and super-efficient boilers, delivering cheaper fuel bills and reducing carbon emissions.

Mick Williamson, managing director at Willmott Dixon Partnerships, said: “Gaining this important accreditation is excellent news not only for our company, but also our clients and customers.

“It will help them to make the most of the technologies and support which is available to them, and proves that their installation meets the highest standards.”
