In the ever-evolving landscape of housing, data is now essential in providing the best living conditions for residents. To meet the requirements of SHDF Wave 2.2 funding, accurately measuring, monitoring, and reporting the effectiveness of retrofit work has become crucial.
Vericon, as your connected data partner, empowers housing providers with access to vital metrics that include environmental data, heat loss and heating efficiency stats, and gas and electric usage data. By harnessing this valuable information, housing providers can make data-driven decisions to enhance the retrofit process and improve overall living conditions for tenants.
The Importance of Data Measurement:
To successfully navigate the retrofit landscape, data measurement plays a pivotal role. Vericon’s Online Portal allows housing providers to effortlessly gather pre and post retrofit data related to environmental factors such as humidity and temperature, as well as energy usage statistics. This comprehensive data enables housing providers to gain valuable insights that drive informed decision-making throughout the retrofit process.
With access to detailed data, housing providers can employ a variety of strategies
to optimise the effectiveness of retrofit interventions. Firstly, it becomes possible to assess and prioritise properties for targeted retrofit work. By identifying those buildings that would benefit most from interventions, housing providers can allocate resources strategically, ensuring maximum impact. Secondly, data analysis enables an understanding of the true impact of retrofit and disrepair interventions. By continuously monitoring the condition of properties, housing providers can ensure that retrofit work results in sustainable improvements for tenants.
The Power of Community Learning and Advanced AI:
To enhance the retrofit journey further, Vericon integrates Community Learning and advanced AI into our solutions. Regardless of the size of their housing portfolios, social housing providers can benefit from this innovative approach to proactive maintenance and increased social responsibility. By harnessing the potential of AI, housing providers can optimise the retrofit process and achieve long-term sustainability goals.
Ask the resident:
The HomeHub App, a mobile application available for residents to download, comes as part of our offering in response to valuable feedback from current customers and their residents. By providing a variety of features designed to enhance residents' understanding of the collected data, including direct communication, the app ensures that they don't feel as though they are being "spied on." This results in fewer objections from residents regarding such monitoring devices.
Maximising Return on Investment:
Vericon’s Customer Success Team is dedicated to supporting housing providers in maximising their return on investment for retrofit works. This commitment extends beyond the project timeline, ensuring ongoing benefits and continuous improvement. By leveraging Vericon’s expertise and innovative solutions, housing providers can increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve overall living conditions for tenants - in alignment with the objectives stated by the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Wave 2.1 & 2.2.
Applying for Wave 2.2 funding demands significant time and effort, often diverting attention from everyday resident-focused tasks. Vericon Systems understands these challenges and is eager to assist housing providers throughout the application process.
