Avonside Energy Efficiency a division of Avonside Group Services, worked closely with Apollo to install carbon reduction energy efficiency measures, and associated enabling roofline works in conjunction with Rykneld Homes at sites across Chesterfield under the governments ECO (CERO) funding umbrella.

We supplied and installed WeberTherm RenderBrick system on EPS insulations to 3 bedroomed Trusteel system built properties which gives a neat, crisp brick slip finish that is in keeping with private owned attached properties thereby maintaining a good aesthetic appearance within the estate to the renovated properties

This project includes structural repairs, remediation works, roofline repairs and isolated full re-roofing works.

Avonside delivered the project on time, to forecast budget and with the minimum of disruption to the tenants. The scheme will deliver a reduction of carbon of approximately 9000 tonnes over the lifetime of the product.

All tenant liaison services are provided by Apollo (Keepmoat) to streamline the communication process. Apollo has been a Decent Homes partner with Rykneld Homes for many years and their customer service team have a strong presence in the community and so this strength was utilised for a true collaborative approach.

Throughout the works we provided protection to the tenants’ garden and surrounding area where the scaffolding and external wall insulation system is applied. At the end of each working day our site teams ensured access to all scaffolding was secure, Ladders and materials were removed, tenant is informed of our operatives leaving the site and expected time we will arrive the following day and provided with out of hours contact details.

Our innovative approach to just in time logistical control allowed for a reduction in storage required on site, resulting in lower preliminary costs for handling and distribution of materials and a huge reduction in site based traffic.

“I was impressed with the application and workmanship on site. Applying Brick Base / Brick Face is one of the most challenging of all finishes to apply, but the examples I saw on site were of the highest standard.”
