Highlands Council – Heeps ABS Scheme

Description of project

IRS Scotland Ltd were appointed as Principal Contractors under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 to deliver the highland council HEEP/ABS project on behalf of Highland council and funding partners EON. The project involved the installation of an EWI Systems to Non- traditional solid wall properties throughout the highlands of Scotland taking in some of the most remote and exposed areas in the North of Scotland. IRS joined the project in September of 2016 and quickly hit the ground running delivering the completed properties quicker than all predecessors. Previous render companies had found the difficult and remote conditions very challenging and had really struggled to hit the output numbers.

However IRS in true form rose to the challenge and are now well into their 4th highly successful year delivering quality and consistency to over 1000 properties in these rural locations to keep the families in the North of Scotland warm and comfortable in their newly Insulated homes. The key to our success on this project has been about building trusting relationships with the local communities and our key partners EON.
