Nottingham Residents Benefit from £3m Energy Efficiency Transformation
Fusion21 member Nottingham City Homes has accessed our Retrofit framework to connect four low-rise apartment blocks in Sneinton to the city’s District Heating network, whilst giving the properties an energy efficient makeover.
Appointed via further competition, social housing specialist contractor Sustainable Building Services is delivering the Total Retrofit project worth £3million.
Servicing 94 households, the 42-week programme set for completion in May 2019, will see homes benefit from the installation of solar panels, battery storage and new A- rated windows & doors plus external wall insulation and internal improvements to make living spaces larger. The project will also include the transformation of bedsits into one bed roomed flats – all in addition to linking properties up to the city’s energy-from-waste, low carbon heat network.
Nottingham has the first district heating network of its in kind in the country and the housing association is currently working in partnership with Nottingham City Council to support the city’s ongoing Greener Housing programme.
Oliver Mooney, Category Manager (Construction) at Fusion21 added: “Through undergoing thermal improvements and a district heating scheme, the energy performance of properties has been enhanced with the introduction of low carbon sources - and residents will benefit from both warmer homes and lower bills.”
