Morgan Sindall Property Services has launched Carbon Zero, a new software platform designed to support housing providers in achieving their net-zero targets.
Carbon Zero gives housing providers a detailed understanding of the carbon impact of their properties and the steps that can be taken to reduce it. By aggregating and analysing data from a housing provider’s asset management systems, surveys, maintenance programmes and other sources, Carbon Zero creates improvement models for the housing provider’s stock portfolio, with a net-zero route map on each property and a schedule of proposed improvement works.
The improvement models provide a breakdown of the costs involved with the proposed works, details of the labour, key components required and a timeline for completion. Housing providers can then optimise the model based on factors such as available funding, carbon reduction, tenant bills, prioritising tenants in fuel poverty, supply-chain capacity, location or the volume of work needed.
Alan Hayward, managing director, Morgan Sindall Property Services, said, “Some of our housing customers are responsible for up to 60,000 properties; ensuring that each of these is compliant, safe and efficient is a huge task. Carbon Zero supports housing providers by providing a clear understanding of the steps that need to be taken to ensure their portfolios are on-track to meet the EPC-C and net-zero targets.”
