SBS has a long-standing working relationship with Rykneld Homes and, currently, we’re delivering energy efficiency improvements to over 70 Reema Non-Traditional Properties.

The work has principally involved fitting external wall insulation, together with associated adaptations. It has enabled a growing number of residents to enjoy warmer homes and reduced bills. We were therefore very pleased to receive a kind email from local tenant, Jackie Foster, who said:

Steady Progress in Derbyshire

Early in 2019, we reported that we'd taken part in a public event organised by Rykneld Homes, to celebrate the completion of the thousandth home to be fitted with external wall insulation.

Since then, we've made steady progress on the first phase of works, which has entailed making energy efficiency improvements to individual properties. That phase is now nearly complete but a second phase, featuring further 38 properties in another neighbourhood, is due to begin shortly.

3 Further Projects in Wrexham

In recent years, SBS has carried out numerous works for Wrexham County Borough Council, the most recent of which has been the newly completed re-roofing and external insulation scheme at Plas Madoc.

However, SBS staff have remained on site because, as the last scheme was finishing, so we received confirmation that we had won additional new contracts in the same area and for the same client.
