Turner & Townsend to support Norfolk’s decarbonisation
The programme will involve 106 assets that are owned or managed by NCC – ranging from libraries and museums, to fire stations and offices.
Turner & Townsend will provide project and cost management services to support the delivery of the decarbonisation programme, which is part of NCC’s wider commitment to achieve net zero across all operations by 2030. It will also act as preferred partner to the council to advise on the delivery of its environment policy and Net Zero Carbon Strategy.
Running for four years, the works will span a diverse portfolio that includes community hubs, workplaces, children’s homes, fire and rescue services, libraries, and museums. The project will take a fabric first approach to building retrofit – focusing on improvements such as insulation, draught-proofing, and ventilation.
Ashley Carline, Director at Turner & Townsend, said: “This appointment is the latest project to showcase our place at the forefront of the industry when it comes to advising and successfully delivering retrofit programmes and net zero strategies. Improving the fabric of the nation’s buildings is a central part of meeting the UK’s net zero targets, and public sector buildings are at the heart of this.”
Turner & Townsend’s Richard McWilliams – Head of Sustainability – is speaking in an elemental webinar on whole house retrofit, taking place on 14th September. To register for your FREE space visit: crowdcast.io/e/models-for-whole-house
