Rykneld Homes, which manages almost 8,000 properties on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council, has appointed Sustainable Building Services (UK) to deliver external wall insulation and related services to 169 REEMA properties in Grassmoor, Chesterfield. The work is being undertaken on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council and it will be part-financed by ECO. The scheme’s total value will be approximately £1m.
The work will include surveys and repairs prior to the fitting of an external wall insulation system designed and manufactured by PermaRock Products. Works will also entail asbestos removal, replacement of roofline and rainwater goods, adaptations for central heating vents and windows, and the installation of new canopies over front doors. Another important element will be the management of ECO funding.
Rykneld Homes scored each contractor’s bid on the basis of quality and price, and determined that the SBS proposal represented best value.
Operating as main contractor, SBS is also delivering energy efficiency, new-build and refurbishment works in the North-west, North and South Wales and throughout the UK.
Commenting on this latest contract award, SBS Commercial Director Gary Lawson said: “We are working with clients such as Nottingham City Homes and Broxtowe Borough Council, and we’re consistently achieving top scores on both price and quality. That’s especially important to us because, fundamentally, delivering best value is what we’re all about.”
