A new case study about the procurement of pioneering technology to maintain social housing stock is now available on the Sustainable Procurement Tools website.

We continue to develop our Sustainable Procurement Tools, adding new products to complement the existing materials. The latest addition is a case study from Renfrewshire Council on an innovative procurement of pioneering technology to maintain their social housing.

About the sensor monitoring equipment case study

The sensors allow the Council to more easily monitor the indoor temperature and humidity levels of their properties. Early detection and intervention maintain comfortable living conditions and to prevent damp able to be carried out before damage escalates.

The sensor procurements have resulted in environment, social, and economic outcomes: climate adaptation through retrofit and maintaining good quality properties; contributing to good quality housing for tenants while addressing fuel poverty; offering jobs and training; and giving tenants the skills/knowledge they need to manage their heating and bills.

You can read more about Renfrewshire Council’s approach on the Case Studies section of the Sustainable Procurement Tools website, which can be accessed both by registered and unregistered users of the Tools.
