Partington Project

2020 – 30 months – £600,000

The Partington Project was a major undertaking for us as part of EQUANS rolling update of their housing stock. They update their significant property portfolio every 20 years to ensure the buildings comply with the latest housing legislation and guidelines.

We were instructed to make several adaptations to the properties in the Partington Project to make them more accessible for disabled tenants, as well as upgrading the windows, doors, and cladding to ensure the buildings are safe, secure, and energy-efficient. The disabled adaptations included fitting access ramps to all properties, a process that included doing the necessary groundwork. To make the homes more energy efficient, we installed brand new double-glazed uPVC windows across the board, as well as composite doors. Not only did these help reduce heat loss from the properties, but their additional security measures also allowed residents to feel safer in their own homes, which is a key concern for tenants with mobility issues.

To further reduce heat loss, we installed Cedral cladding on the exterior of the properties. This hard-wearing material is made up of cement and cellulose fibres, giving it great durability and making it resistant to fire, rot, and the elements.
