Turner & Townsend has been appointed to deliver a new programme of public sector decarbonisation works for Norfolk County Council’s real estate
The project will take a fabric-first approach to building retrofit – focusing on improvements such as insulation, draught-proofing, and ventilation.
NCC has committed to achieving net zero across all operations by 2030
Turner & Townsend will provide project and cost management services to support the delivery of the decarbonisation works that are set to run for four years. They will also advise on the delivery of NCC’s environment policy and Net Zero Carbon Strategy.
The works will span a diverse portfolio that includes community hubs, workplaces, children’s homes, fire and rescue services, libraries, and museums.
Turner & Townsend has vast experience in delivering retrofit investments for public and private sector assets
Ashley Carline, director at Turner & Townsend, said:
“This appointment is the latest project to showcase Turner & Townsend’s 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.
“Norfolk’s ambitious programme sets a strong example to other local authorities dealing with the complexity of managing a wide variety of building types.
“We look forward to working with the Council over the next four years to bring the project to a successful conclusion.”
