3,000 homes across the North West of the UK have already been improved as leading energy and regeneration specialist ENGIE reaches the halfway point of a £54million framework with Your Housing Group (YHG) and celebrates winning an additional refurbishment package.
ENGIE has been working with YHG as part of a four-year framework focused on improvements to the social housing provider’s housing stock and has recently secured a further £2.8m of internal works, in addition to the existing programme.
Completed works include the installation of hundreds of kitchens and bathrooms in properties located across Manchester, Stockport, Warrington, Preston, Halifax and Leeds, as well as window and door replacements in Leeds, Wigan, Warrington and Merseyside.
Commenting on the work, YHG resident, Alan Smith from Birchwood, Warrington, said: “I just wanted to say thanks to the team at ENGIE. Everyone involved with the refurbishment of my bathroom has done an excellent job and I’m really pleased with the finished results. All the workers have been clean, efficient, and very pleasant. The finish is very good and having a clean new bathroom will have such a positive impact on my wellbeing, so you’re not just building, you’re improving lives.”
Work now continues on year three of the programme, with works in Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside. In addition, more than 1500 homes have received a brand-new heating system and the recent addition of further works will see more upgrades to kitchens, bathrooms, wet rooms, electrics and heating systems, across YHG’s housing stock.
Neil Warburton, Head of Refurbishment at ENGIE, said: “We are delighted to have secured this additional work and to be continuing our successful partnership with Your Housing Group, which has seen thousands of homes improved – benefitting residents across the North.
“As a business, we’re focused on working with partners to improve the environment we live in, as well as future-proofing estates across the country. We’re looking forward to continuing our work with YHG in the years to come.”
