IES lands place on CCS SPARK and HELGA frameworks

The built environment climate tech firm has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) SPARK and HELGA frameworks, which help the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring goods and services.Through the SPARK framework, IES will provide best in class digital twin building simulation tools and services based on fundamental physics principles, sensor data, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to deliver a range of decarbonisation outcomes for the built environment. Digital twin technology works across the timeline of any building or community, managing the present, road-mapping the future, and learning from the past. Digital twins present exciting opportunities to navigate the route to zero-carbon and sustainable and healthier communities.

The HELGA framework focuses on heat and energy networks, and via this framework, IES’s ICL platform will be available to plan, design, build and maintain resilient, zero-carbon community energy schemes. This includes giving an understanding of complex interactions between buildings, investigating energy generation, waste heat and storage strategies, linking electric vehicle charge points and more.

Craig McKendrick Business Development Manager at IES, said: “The built environment is a huge emitter of carbon, as well as a drain on finances if energy use is not adequately managed. For the public sector, these cost and carbon savings are absolutely crucial, so we are pleased to be able to support minimising these outputs.

“Being named as a CCS supplier is an exciting next step for us within our public sector focus, and we look forward to working closely with organisations to ensure their building stock is using energy in the best possible way for both the planet and taxpayers.”

Waste Management and Recycling Survey

FMJ in conjunction with Grundon Waste Management have launched the 2022 survey into how FMs approach their waste management and recycling responsibilities.

It’s the fifth year for the annual appraisal, and as we return to normal, there is a real opportunity for FMs to reappraise their waste and recycling operations and look at new, smarter waste management strategies.

In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions which include insights into FMs’ waste management strategy and targets, such as zero waste and landfill, the types of waste organisations produce and what helps FMs promote waste management in their organisations?

Please share your experiences and opinions on waste management. The survey will take just five minutes to complete, and as a thank you for taking part, respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win a £150 Amazon gift card.
