Award-winning solar installers, Campbell & Kennedy (C&K), have won a four year appointment with Procurement for Housing (PfH).
The framework will be used to provide solar PV installations for PfH’s Members. Working with Campbell & Kennedy will enable Members to gain access to consultancy, advice and guidance on funding and grants and technology specific expertise. Campbell & Kennedy are 'Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority'.
With over 900 Members, PfH is the only national procurement organisation dedicated to the needs of the social housing sector. The consortium generates substantial savings by harnessing the collective purchasing power of housing organisations. By reducing procurement costs, organisations can reinvest resources in front-line services, decent homes and vibrant neighbourhoods.
Being appointed to the PfH framework will allow C&K to remove client’s costs relevant to an extended procurement exercise as well as save time and internal resources. The framework allows Members to start and complete projects faster and helps speed up the process of alleviating fuel poverty throughout the UK.
C&K’s appointment follows a rigorous competitive tender process, following which only a handful of similar contractors were successfully appointed to the national solar framework.
Gerry Kennedy, Managing Director at Campbell & Kennedy said: “This is an important appointment for Campbell & Kennedy and a great achievement by our solar division which continues to go from strength to strength.”
“We look forward to working with PfH Members and building long-term relationships.”
Previous and current C&K projects will see in excess of 14 megawatts of solar PV installed across a range of public sector clients. The potential long term returns of these projects should provide a ‘Total Community Benefit’ in excess of £90m. C&K look forward to working with PfH to continue to provide high quality service and installations combined with excellent returns for our clients.
