Basildon Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Property Services complete first phase of £2.2M regeneration project

A major project to refurbish and upgrade housing stock has seen a BBA-certified external wall insulation system applied to 135 homes in Basildon. The installation of the new insulation systems is the first phase of a £2.2m project to regenerate Basildon Borough Council’s Craylands and Fryerns housing estates.

Installing external wall insulation will slash a typical detached household’s annual bill by around £455 a year. The bill for a flat would be cut by around £145 a year.

A resident from Wells Gardens, Basildon said: “We’re really pleased with the work. Our latest bill has already gone down a bit. It looks good and I can find no fault with it.”

Bradley Priest, Morgan Sindall Property Services Project Manager, comments: “We are very pleased to have completed the first phase of this large scale project. The programme for delivery was 12 months, but we were able to deliver a month early. We are now working on the next phase of the regeneration scheme which includes 200 homes.”

The BBA-certified external wall insulation system provides thermal protection, and is designed to meet strict fire protection requirements. It combines non-combustible mineral-fibre insulation board with a mineral reinforcing coat, glass-fibre reinforcing mesh and high performance decorative finishes.

The external wall insulation also offers protection against weathering, damp and algae growth, making it ideal for buildings exposed to harsh weather conditions.

New windows, doors and guttering were also installed, contributing to a full facelift for each of the Council’s properties.

As part of the scheme, Morgan Sindall Property Services will be completing the external wall insulation on a total of 600 properties by 2023. Also, Basildon Borough Council will be building 994 new homes, providing housing for over 3000 people.
