Project Development and Management

Do you have a project in mind?

Do you lack the staff resource or right skills to turn your ideas into a viable project?

Not even sure whether your idea is feasible?

Talk to us. We may even be able to help find funding to support your project.

USEA has extensive experience of Grant Administration and Area Based promotion. Our Consumer Services team, responsible for the Cocoon Comparison service, helped Milton Keynes Council design a system to deliver the ambitions of its Carbon Offset Fund. This has consistently delivered carbon reduction on target to a budget since its inception.

To March 2011, the agency has handled £1m in funding from the Milton Keynes Council. During 2009/10 alone, a total of 2470 MK homes were insulated thanks to subsidy from the fund.

An Area Based Approach has been developed to deliver loft and cavity wall insulation referrals in volume where major funds are to be distributed.

Cocoon, however, reflects only one aspect of USEA's project management portfolio. Our project work is wide and varied and in 2010, for example, we also delivered:

  • a feasibility study for retrofit of 'hard to treat' housing estates
  • options appraisal for a community building
  • 'Let's Go Eco' community engagement project
  • resident surveys as part of a European project

USEA staff have supported many exciting initiatives over the years. Our staff co-ordinated a Solar PV demonstration project for one of the earliest Council adopters of this renewable technology.

USEA draws on a diverse skill set including technical, communication, public engagement and facilitation skills. Along with the ability to write successful funding bids, these skills enable us to provide comprehensive project support.

We can supply:

  • A project feasibility study
  • Full or partial project development
  • Management services

We look forward to discussing your ideas and how we can help.
