Four-year Fusion21 deal to be used for decarbonisation works on homes and schools

Contractors have been put on notice for a £750m framework for decarbonising buildings launched by procurement firm Fusion21.

The four-year framework will be used for energy-saving retrofits, with work including installation of new heat pumps, insulation and solar panels. It also includes architectural, engineering and fit-out services.

The framework is split into two lots, one £500m lot for domestic dwellings and a £250m lot for public and education buildings.
