Vaillant UK has signed an agreement with Willmott Dixon Construction, the construction and interior fit-out specialist that works across all sectors of the construction market, including education, health, leisure, residential, hotels, law, and offices.
The contract means Vaillant is mandated as sole supplier for Willmott Dixon Construction’s domestic gas boilers, which will be fitted in the new build residential sector of their business portfolio. Willmott Dixon was keen to standardise the specification for the boilers they use in their homes, as well as for the many larger projects and applications across the country. Vaillant secured the contract following an exhaustive tender process and a visit by Willmott Dixon’s team to Vaillant Industrial, the award-winning manufacturing plant in Belper, Derbyshire that produces over 300,000 boilers per year for the UK market.
Steve Cipriano, commercial director, key accounts at Vaillant said: “We’re delighted that Willmott Dixon made this specification decision based on ensuring they provide the best quality heating systems for their customers. It’s never been more important to provide the most efficient appliances for their discerning customers and we have demonstrated that we can supply the right boilers that deliver the performance expected in new homes.”
Gary Johnston, senior supply chain coordinator (products) at Willmott Dixon Construction commented: “Vaillant`s relentless focus on achieving industry leading quality in their boilers aligns perfectly with Willmott Dixon's own desire to ‘astonish our customers’ and to ‘build lives less ordinary’.'
A new study released by Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) shows that improving the insulation of existing residential buildings in the EU would significantly contribute to securing the bloc’s energy independence and achieving he EU target of reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
Improved insulation of EU residential buildings would result in a reduction of energy demand for heating in buildings by 777 TWh, or 44% compared to 2020: 46% in gas savings, 44% in heating oil savings and 48% in coal savings.
