Residential – ECO EWI Energy Efficiency Installations
- Client: Brent Housing Partnership
- Services: Building Surveying, Project Management
Capital were commissioned to manage the installation of External Wall Insulation scheme, including replacement of roof coverings, to 115 houses in Brent.
Despite some initial challenges to obtain full resident buy-in to the works, we eventually managed to obtain real customer satisfaction in the process and the finish.
The long term benefits in terms of reduced fuel bills, improved energy efficiencies, affordable warmth and regeneration and growth of the community where all apparent to the residents and the client. Making full use of the scaffolding to refurbish the external envelope of the properties also enabled the client to maintain and improve their housing stock at an economical rate.
The scale of the delivery programme and the proactive partnership approach with the Eco providers enabled a high level of carbon savings to be achieved resulting in cost savings to the client.
The Energy Efficiency measures introduced by the Government following the Energy Act 2013, included the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme, the Green Deal Finance Initiative, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). These measures together help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce Carbon emissions.
The project was shortlisted in the Greater London Regional Energy Efficiency & Retrofit Awards – Large Scale Project of the Year. The aim of the Energy Efficiency & Retrofit Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing these schemes. And to help encourage best practice within the Energy industry as it works to improve UK housing stock.
