Mi-space has been appointed to help spearhead the transformation of ageing and energy-inefficient housing in London, as part of a ten-year £10 billion drive to help the capital cut carbon emissions and achieve net-zero carbon by 2030.
The Greater London Authority (GLA) Retrofit Accelerator of Homes Initiative was launched by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to help tackle the climate emergency, as well as reducing energy bills through insulation and the installation of low-carbon heat and power solutions across London’s social housing stock.
Mi-space, part of the Midas Group, is one of five firms that have been chosen to help develop innovative solutions.
The aim is to provide London’s boroughs and housing associations, as well as national partners, with the technical expertise and solutions needed to deliver ‘whole house’ retrofit projects across their properties.
AJ Eaton, Director of Mi-space, said: “Mi-space is delighted and very proud to be at the heart of this pioneering initiative and to be helping lead a revolution in how we future-proof homes across the country in response to the challenges of climate change, tackling fuel poverty and achieving zero carbon by 2030. This approach upgrades existing homes with everything they need to be future-proofed, such as high-spec insulation, renewable heating systems and solar panels fitted at the same time to radically reduce a home’s energy use and bills as well as its carbon footprint.
“Mi-space has been an early innovator in this sector and we have considerable experience in providing low-carbon retrofitting solutions on a wide range of properties. This project allows us to contribute our expertise to what is a very significant project which will shape how London, the wider UK and the construction sector responds to the huge challenge we face in making our existing homes fit for a zero-carbon future.”
The company’s strategy is to be the contractor of choice in the areas in which it operates, through development of long-term relationships via delivery of its vision to be ‘leaders in customer service and performance’. It is a strategy which is already showing success, with more than 80% of the group’s projects being carried out on a repeat-business basis.
