A Northamptonshire firm of asbestos experts has secured a major new contract which enables it to tender for projects with more than 100 UK housing associations, local authorities and related organisations.

Acorn Analytical Services has been given access to the network of members belonging to not-for-profit organisation CHIC after meeting its stringent awards criteria.

CHIC currently has more than 140 members who together own and manage over 800,000 social housing homes and other buildings across the UK.

Acorn Analytical Services director Neil Munro said: “CHIC only works with the best organisations so it can secure efficiencies and savings for their members’ asset management programmes, including all repairs, maintenance and new build activities.

“To get this endorsement from CHIC is brilliant recognition for our award-winning team which is already widely recognised as a market leader in the innovation of effective and efficient asbestos management services.

“We’re delighted to be working with CHIC and its members.”

Acorn’s success with CHIC comes on the back of it securing another major contract earlier this year with the not-for-profit national purchasing consortium, Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC), which enables them to tender for projects with thousands of UK universities, colleges and schools.
