Westdale are delighted to have nominated Rykneld Homes for the accolade of Housing Association of the Year in the East Midlands Energy Efficiency & Healthy Homes awards. Needless to say, Rykneld Homes were delighted to have been nominated, let alone being awarded this accolade.
In our opinion, Rykneld Homes are more than deserving of this award, having excelled in their ambitions and approach to delivering large-scale energy efficiency retrofit measures to some of their most deserving neighbourhoods, coupled with their effective selection of housing stock and subsequent programme management.
Having recently completed the second phase of regeneration, Westdale have now delivered over five hundred solid wall insulation installs on behalf of Rykneld Homes; the most recent project, which was completed only a few weeks ago, has seen the installation of insulation, roofing works & double glazing etc. to 180 hard-to-heat concrete built ‘REEMA’ properties in the village of Renishaw. During that time, the Westdale teams have really enjoyed working in this community to help tackle fuel poverty, reduce carbon emissions, and breathe a new lease of life into these non-traditionally constructed properties.
During the delivery phases, Westdale have supported the local community in a number of ways, including educational support, delivering environmental enhancement schemes, and by providing financial support to local community group, ‘Renishaw Forward’.
We look forward to continuing this great work in the near future.
