Triple recognition for Smallbridge energy efficiency scheme

Buckley View 2

Our pioneering refurbishment scheme at Buckley View in Smallbridge, delivered by partners EQUANS and designed by TADW Architects, has been recognised with three upcoming award nominations.

The scheme has seen 23 bungalows receive investment to help improve the energy efficiency of the homes and reduce carbon emissions using a whole house fabric first approach. Work carried out includes replacing cavity wall and roof insulation, external wall insulation with a brick slip finish, upgraded ventilation, and new windows and doors. These improvements will improve the efficiency of the homes, aiming to improve thermal comfort, reduce consumption, and lower carbon emissions as a result.

The scheme has been shortlisted in "large scale project of the year" at the North West Energy Efficiency Awards, for "sustainability project of the year" at the Aico HomeLink Community Awards 2022, and for "best retrofit initiative" at the Northern Housing Awards.

The refurbishment is one of a series of demonstrator projects that we is carrying out. These projects will inform our ongoing approach to improving the energy efficiency of homes and reducing carbon emissions, helping to identify the best ways to meet Greater Manchester’s 2038 target to be carbon neutral. Our new strategy sets out how we will rise to the climate emergency through greener, low carbon and climate resilient communities.

We are working hard to improve the quality, energy efficiency, and comfort of our homes and reducing our impact on the environment. This project makes a great contribution to playing our part to meet Greater Manchester's carbon neutral targets by 2038. We have received some great feedback for residents at Buckley View and we are delighted that this pioneering scheme has been recognised with three award nominations

We’re delighted to have worked on these crucial retrofit works, which will no doubt see an increase in energy efficiency and hopefully reduced fuel consumption for residents as a result. The climate emergency is an ever-present issue, and EQUANS is pleased to be helping combat this through our fabric first approach. It’s great to see the scheme nominated for three awards, this is testament to a great partnership between EQUANS and RBH.
