New contract win for Galliford Try and Knauf Insulation

Published:  29 May, 2012

UK: Galliford Try, the leading housebuilding and construction group, and leading insulation manufacturer, Knauf Insulation have come together as part of a two year supply chain agreement.

Recent Government legislation set out in Building Regulations Part L and the Code for the Sustainable Homes, have imposed even higher thermal efficiencies and an increased emphasis on how different materials can contribute to a building’s thermal performance at design stage. With this in mind, Galliford Try has adopted a fabric first approach for its new housing developments, to ensure the building envelope is thermally efficient to provide a high level of comfort for occupants coupled with lower energy bills.

Kevin Moran, group procurement director at Galliford Try commented: “We are committed to specifying highly sustainable solutions for our housing developments, to ensure we not only adhere to legislative requirements, but so that we are ensuring long-term performance for our customers. The products that Knauf Insulation can supply us with satisfy our strict requirements and offer us the most efficient and sustainable solutions on the market – all the while helping us to address our environmental initiatives.”

John Hough, business development manager, at Knauf Insulation comments: “With insulation being one of the easiest and cheapest means of reducing energy use, this new partnership with Knauf Insulation is timely in ensuring Galliford Try’s developments offer the most effective and efficient fabric solutions for long-term performance.

“With over 60 years of knowledge and experience, Knauf Insulation has been able to create the industry’s widest range of insulation products for thermal, acoustic and fire protection applications. Therefore, this new contract gives us the opportunity to advise and support Galliford Try with the right product or system for the application.”

Committed to developing relationships with the whole supply chain, this contract agreement involves product solutions from Knauf Insulation and installation services from SIG Energy Management.
