A survey in which customers identified areas that needed targeting has determined how Calico Homes will invest over £25m. in the next five years. Calico Homes has identified the need to improve the energy efficiency of customers’ homes to provide warmer and safer houses for residents.
Wendy Malone, Director of Property at Calico Homes, said: “We are delighted to have got underway with improvements to our customers’ homes as part of our 5-year investment plan.
“We identified what type of work needed targeting in our homes after feedback from our customers, including improving the energy efficiency of homes in a time of an energy crisis, which will be carried out as part of our first programme at Coronation Avenue.”
