Calor introduces specification division for housebuilders
Calor has introduced a new specification division dedicated to the housebuilder and developer market.
Matt Raybould has joined Calor as specifiers’ consultant for the north and Scotland, while Ian Thornton has been promoted to specifiers’ consultant for the Midlands and south. The team is headed up by specification manager Ian Digby, who has worked in the lpg industry for over six years and manages larger and more complex installations for major housebuilders.
Ian Digby said: “After reviewing our offering to the rural housebuilding market, it was considered that this important and growing sector required specialist resource. This is especially the case for sites where connection to the mains gas grid would not be possible or financially viable and where many housebuilders may have limited experience of the different off grid fuel choices available.
“In these circumstances, there needs to be careful consideration made around the heating method and fuel choice specified to ensure it meets a range of criteria, including capital equipment costs, installation time, its impact on standard house designs and its appeal to prospective buyers. We are now able to work with the developer through the complete housebuilding cycle, from provisional site appraisal to planning permission to site development to build process and completion to providing aftersales support for the new homeowner.”
