About Us

Sustainable Energy Services is a trading style of Sustainable Building Services (UK) Limited - part of the Sustainable Group and one of the most respected names in the industry. Established in 1976, we are a member of both SWIGA and the National Insulation Association and (until the scheme's closure) we were registered under the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (Reference Number: P8O7HV). We meet strict national and international standards for quality, safety and environmental management.

As a BBA-accredited installer, we don't just carry out domestic installations; we also deliver multi-million pound contracts for some of the country's largest and most demanding housing associations and local authorities. We apply exactly the same quality controls on all our projects - large or small - so you can always count on receiving industry-leading quality and exceptional customer service.

We have our own, highly skilled, highly trained operatives who are experienced in a wide range of energy efficiency measures. What's more, we also have expert teams of builders, painters and decorators and other professionals who can help you with many other types of building improvement and renovation.

When you work with us, you’ll notice our enthusiasm and the accountability of our staff: you won’t be kept waiting for answers and you’ll always be able to call upon the skills and advice you need.  What’ s more, you’ll know that we’ll never stop thinking – never stop looking for opportunities to give you the best possible value for money.
