This is to be a collection of applicators and installers (sometimes also suppliers) of materials with their contact details, for locating and contacting

We have a collection of Specification Applicator and Installer Appendix but we have not started uploading these yet.

They may become part of a bigger database in time when it will be added to a products materials suppliers & installers schedules


UK Government position:

There seems to be a mixed bag of responses:

They will Act to criminalise wrong doing, quite rightly.

But they are anti-legislation to drive change, improvement in standards or quality; wanting industry to police itself and for industry to drive change itelf.

The Construction Line website is described as a UK Goverment Certification Service.

Its use is entirely voluntary unless a project’s tender documents require otherwise.

However in any Government funded energy saving scheme or carbon reduction programme like CRC, RHI, FIT, GreenDeal, ECO there is an obligation to use accredited products and accredited installers; previously Clear Skies and now MCS provide lists of approve products and approve installers.

No others are permitted within these schemes.

This ensures that the scheme is probably sound, insurable and responsibility for failure can be more readily pinpointed.

Thermal insulation, weather proofing and renewable energy are rigorously controlled, but it appears anybody can set up as a builder and do business without training or qualification in the UK.

Hence Cowboy Builders.

And Rogue Traders TV program.


Skills V Care

Despite a Skills Program in the UK the industry is driven by Fiduciary Rules (An obligation to make a profit for shareholders) and the installers and applicators are not permitted time to care so often they have often forgotten how to care.

Hence (part of) the Performance Gap where buildings do not perform as designed.

Self-builders often have no skills training but have the time to care and quite often do a better performing job.


Construction Industry

Industry is under an obligation to make a profit for shareholders, where all good intentions get second place in the queue.

Construction programmes force short cuts and can lead to inadequate installations.


Manufacturer trained/approved/accredited installers

Whenever you want to fit or replace a boiler or other kit and also when you want a particular product applied or installed, first consider a manufactuer’s approved installer to do the work. They may be in the manufacturer’s employment or they may be independent.

If there are back to back guarantees for Product & Installation then don’t bypass the opportunity.

Don’t be tempted to use a cheap installer to save money.

If an unapproved installer is unfamiliar with a piece of kit they may not install, configure and calibrate it to do the job efficiently and all the effort to find the most efficient kit may be squandered.


MCS accredited equipment and MCS Accredited Installers

We often hear objections to the obligation to use an MCS approved installer to fit MCS approved kit, on the grounds they cost more.

If they cost more its probably because they are better trained, know the particular kit and know how it is to be used and know how it needs to be set up, configured and calibrated to maximise its potential efficiency.
