Housing Associations and Local Authorities get more

Sidey has secured a place on the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) for all categories of windows and doors.

Steve Hardy, managing director at Sidey, said: “SPA provides public sector clients the assurances they need when choosing a partner for windows and doors. We understand how vital it is for housing associations and local authorities to show transparency in their decision-making processes, and the SPA framework makes it quicker and easier for them to find partners for timber and PVCU windows and entrance doors.

“SPA also offers pre-checks for quality and price, and a score for the most economically advantageous tender (MEAT) is given. Sidey scored as the top company for MEAT in all five geographical areas covering Scotland from the Highlands and Islands to Southern Scotland.

“It’s only a select few companies that make it onto the list, so to be top overall shows excellent performance for our products, service and installation. The Code for Sustainable Homes, Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing EESSH, Retrofit for the Future, Fabric First and Passivhaus are easily met using our products.”

Sidey is the only company to offer BS 8213-4:2016 that covers the survey and installation of windows and external doorsets, the company said.
