EQUANS has been awarded a place on nine lots of the new Your Housing Group (YHG) Planned Investment Framework, securing first place of five of the nine lots. This includes key refurbishment and upgrade works to kitchens and bathrooms, windows and doors, electric, heating and whole-house improvements to YHG stock across the North of England. The framework, starting this year, will run until 2026.
This demonstrates EQUANS’ commitment to traditional refurbishment and regeneration work, improving homes on behalf of Your Housing Group and in turn the lives of residents living there.
The EQUANS refurbishment team in the North West has delivered over £11m of work with Your Housing Group over the last 12 months, improving over 2000 homes in the region.
As well as traditional refurbishment work, EQUANS has recently been awarded sustainability work through the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), improving the energy rating of numerous homes across the North West region and beyond.
Neil Warburton, Refurbishment Director at EQUANS, said: “We’re delighted to have won a place on nine lots on the YHG Planned Investment Framework. EQUANS has carried out key refurbishment works across thousands of YHG’s properties over the last few years, with the team continuing to work safely even throughout the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. All credit to the EQUANS team who have made this possible, and we look forward to working with YHG as a strategic partner in the coming months and years.”
Conan McKinley, Director of Asset and Building Safety at YHG, said: “I am really pleased that YHG will be continuing our relationship with EQUANS through this new framework. It is vital that we continue to invest in our customers’ homes to ensure we provide quality homes for people to thrive, providing an excellent service at the same time.
