At the start of the year, SBS was shortlisted for the Project of the Year category in the 2019 Building Communities Awards, hosted by Efficiency East Midlands. The project in question was commissioned by Broxtowe Borough Council and involved installing a PermaRock external wall insulation system to 233 occupied properties.
Now, in the summer of 2019, we have begun work on a continuation project, which was once again procured via EEM. Whereas the previous scheme was funded by ECO2, this phase of works is one of the first to be funded by the energy company E.ON via the new ECO3 scheme.
The work entails installing a PermaRock external wall insulation system to 61 properties, together with associated adaptations. Valued at around £490,000, the work is expected to continue until just before Christmas.
