Helping social housing providers to manage their assets

As a social housing provider, whether you are retrofitting existing stock or planning a new build scheme, future proofing your assets against costly annual repairs is a key objective.

Support you can trust

We understand the demands of the social housing sector and the impact of legislative and regulatory changes to your business. We work closely with local authorities, housing associations and their partners to help safeguard housing stock and to ensure legal obligations are met.

From repairs and maintenance programmes, planned works to traditional new build or offsite manufacture using Modern Methods of Construction, we provide a wide selection of product options that are suitable to meet the needs of social housing landlords, achieving full compliance with UK and Ireland building regulations and standards. Our product quality is assured through rigorous lab and field testing together with third party certification as required.

Future proof your project

With the need for social housing developments to deliver energy efficiency to meet the Future Homes Standard and achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050, Glidevale Protect supports this ‘fabric first’ approach by delivering solutions to improve airtightness, minimise thermal bridging and increase thermal efficiency with reflective, insulating membranes. Where properties have inadequate existing ventilation, we can also provide whole house ventilation systems to help contribute to healthier homes and manage condensation risk.

Comprehensive technical support

Our knowledgeable Technical team can provide social housing providers and their construction partners with a full range of technical support, including guidance on the latest Part L, Part F & NZEB requirements whilst also ensuring specified products conform to PAS2035:2019 for retrofit projects. They also offer U-value calculations, condensation risk analysis, ventilation advice and structured quotes.

For support with your housing scheme contact or call +44 (0) 161 905 5700.

A key emphasis for this design and build project was for all dwellings to be as energy efficient as possible and meet our overall U-value target. The use of insulating reflective membranes from Glidevale Protect helped to deliver against these objectives.
