Baxi and Nottingham City Homes join forces to deliver warmth
Nottingham City Homes has teamed up with Baxi to install 11,200 new high efficiency boilers over the next three years. The project is part of its 'Secure Warm Modern' scheme to bring the 29,000 homes it manages up to the Decent Homes standard by 2013.
Paul Ruston heads up the 'Warmth' area of the project. He says: "We are delighted to have established a partnership with Baxi. Nottingham City Homes is committed to providing affordable warmth for all our residents. Replacing old inefficient boilers with new high efficiency models along with double glazing and adequate loft insulation helps to lower their fuel use and save them money.
"Nottingham City Homes is committed to this huge refurbishment project, and in order to complete it by 2013 it is vital that we have an effective supply chain. Our target is to install 405 new boilers a month, so this means working closely with manufacturer, contractors and local merchants to ensure we can work quickly and effectively in our residents' homes with minimum inconvenience to them.
"We are pleased that Baxi is our boiler supplier because, as well as a range of high efficiency boilers that suits the various properties we are updating, it also provides complete technical, training and service back up."
Steve Rickards, Baxi Group Specification Director, added: "Nottingham City Homes has an extremely comprehensive programme in place to update their properties, and we are proud to be part of it as their sole boiler supplier."
The boilers are supplied through local Nottingham merchants and installed by Nottingham City Homes' property services section and contractor partners Vinshires Plumbing and Heating and Superior Plumbing Installations.
