Greener Valleys

Over the last year we have been involved in a number of projects in the Heads of Valleys area working with Local Housing Associations where monies funded through the Welsh Assembly Government, Heads of the Valleys fund and Low Carbon Building Programme Grants have been used to procure renewable technologies and energy efficient measures for dwellings across the area.

Throughout the Heads of the Valleys we have been involved in a programme of 250 boiler replacement works and the installation of solar hot water systems on domestic properties. Solar Replacement Works due for Completion June 2010

In Rassau we are currently involved in a project to provide 43 no units where 11no units were piloted to be upgraded to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and 1no unit to be upgraded to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. The increases required have not only been in the specification of the materials used in the fabric of the building (Permeable paving, Window Specification) and renewable technologies installed in the property (Photovoltics, Rainwater Harvesting) but as a team we have also had to look at the procurement and processes of the works.  Rassau due for Completion End of June 2010
