Forrest says it has become the first business to achieve certification for Green Deal by NICEIC.  

Forrest, which specialises in social housing regeneration, is now certified against Green Deal standard PAS 2030 – the requirement needed to carry out Green Deal work.

The company’s chief executive Lee McCarren said: “We have placed green technology and techniques at the heart of our business and continually invest to keep ourselves at the cutting edge of sustainable building practice.

“The Green Deal is a once in a generation opportunity for UK homeowners, affordable housing providers and the construction industry and Forrest will be at the forefront of its delivery.”
