The PRC Refurbishment project has been highly commended at the South West Region Green Deal and Eco Awards.
The project to refurbish around 1,000 of our non-traditional properties with new external wall insulation, came third in the Project of the Year category at last week's awards ceremony in Exeter. The project was pipped to the award by Westward Housing's Croft House project, which is the first housing association block of flats in the UK to be installed with individual ground source heat pumps connected to a communal ground array
We're currently in the third phase of the project which is seeing improvements made to 150 properties in Filton, Little Stoke and Thornbury. Work is well underway at more than 80 properties, many of which are nearing completion.
Project manager Richard Hopkins said: “It’s been a relatively mild winter with no bad cold spells or storms. This has allowed us to work almost uninterupted throughout during the past few months.”
We're also in the process of tendering for a contractor to carry out the work to all of the remaining 700 properties in the programme. We hope to appoint them fairly soon so they can start work later this year on the next phase of the project in Patchway, Little Stoke, Winterbourne and Cadbury Heath.
