External Wall Insulation to 78 occupied social housing properties within an extremely demanding timeframe. The Contract was awarded to Avonside and needed to be completed on time to qualify for ECO funding from Scottish Power.

Initially only 65 properties were to be completed, however the client wished to maximise funding opportunities and after discussions with our team, an additional 13 properties were included in the original programme of works.

An Alumasc system was installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification on all of the properties that were distributed throughout the Danefields area of Northwich, Cheshire.

As an approved PAS 2030 installer competent in all aspects of ECO Funding requirements, plus able to offer an inclusive site dedicated Tenant Liaison Officer service, Avonside Energy Efficiency were selected to undertake this work for Weaver Vale Housing Trust following a robust tender selection procedure, including quality, price and interview presentation. The evaluation was 50/50 price and quality.

Weaver Vale Housing Trust is part of the Airport Group. The group has made a commitment to using local labour and supporting the local Training and Work Pledge. Avonside therefore utilised, where practicable, local companies to undertake all the enabling works and our TLO is a resident of the Cheshire community.
