The deal will see Knauf insulation products specified on Galliford Try’s housing developments.
The move follows recent Government legislation set out in Building Regulations Part L and the Code for the Sustainable Homes which have imposed even higher thermal efficiency standards on new homes.
Galliford Try has adopted a “fabric first” approach to its new housing developments to ensure the building envelope is thermally efficient.
Kevin Moran, Group Procurement Director at Galliford Try said: “We are committed to specifying highly sustainable solutions for our housing developments, to ensure we not only adhere to legislative requirements, but so that we are ensuring long-term performance for our customers.
“The innovative products that Knauf Insulation can supply us with satisfy our strict requirements and offer us the most efficient and sustainable solutions on the market – all the while helping us to address our environmental initiatives.”
John Hough, Business Development Manager, at Knauf Insulation said: “With insulation being one of the easiest and cheapest means of reducing energy use, this new partnership with Knauf Insulation is timely in ensuring Galliford Try’s developments offer the most effective and efficient fabric solutions for long-term performance.
“This new contract gives us the opportunity to advise and support Galliford Try with the right product or system for the application.”
Installation work for the Knauf products will be carried-out by SIG Energy Management.
