Triple success for CMS with local authorities across Scotland

// the building envelope

Established in 2006, CMS Window Systems is one of the country’s leading window, door and curtain walling designers, fabricators and installers and is delighted to have been awarded onto Scotland Excel’s new framework as a provider of replacement windows and doors for local authority housing stock across Scotland. This is the third successful contract award for CMS’ PVCu division since the start of its new financial year in April 2017, reinforcing the company’s ethos of long-term sustainability. CMS was selected after submitting its bid via Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) to Scotland Excel for lot 2.8: Replacement of Domestic Windows and Doors and comes hot on the heels of its recent contract award wins with East Dunbartonshire and North Lanarkshire Councils.

The installation of energy efficient windows and doors across local authority housing stock will improve the energy efficiency of homes and contribute towards the achievement of the Energy Efficiency Standard in Social Housing (EESSH), the standard to which the properties of all social landlords in Scotland are required to meet by 2020. Replacing old outdated windows and doors with new ‘A’ rated for energy efficiency alternatives will not only be aesthetically pleasing but more importantly will help to reduce energy consumption for residents aiding the fight against fuel poverty. The emission of greenhouse gases is also reduced which is in line with the requirements set out in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009.

CMS is capable of manufacturing a wide variety of PVCu window styles including tilt & turn, casement and fully reversible, as well as composite and PVCu doors from its resource efficient, state-of-the-art manufacturing  facilities in Cumbernauld. All products are A-rated for energy efficiency and security certified by the police-approved Secured by Design initiative. And CMS is proud to play a part in bringing these improvements to homes across Scotland as they will help to significantly reduce heat transfer which in turn will help residents to heat their homes to a comfortable level using less energy which will ultimately aid in the fight to end fuel poverty.

Craig Reid, Contracts Director at CMS Window Systems commented: “Being appointed to the Scotland Excel framework agreement for the replacement of windows and doors recognises the successful ethos of our organisation: environmental, social and economic sustainability, and we are delighted to be selected once again as a key supply chain partner for local authorities across Scotland.

We aim to close-the-loop in everything we do and we divert nearly all of our waste from landfill. Delivering homes which are significantly more energy efficient, more comfortable for occupiers, aesthetically better, safer and more secure is something we’ve been helping housing providers to achieve since our inception in 2006.”
