Camden Council

Making an impact by installing energy efficiency improvements to hard to treat properties

Camden Council called upon Lakehouse to undertake a challenging energy efficiency programme when the previous contractor was unable to deliver. The project required the improvement of 267 hard to treat properties on the Lymington Road Estate within just five weeks.

With no time to waste we commenced the installation of hard to treat cavity wall insulation and external wall insulation within two weeks of approval, enabling us to complete the programme on time. Work was undertaken to street properties, flats and town houses for a mix of residents including private owners, private renters and housing association.

The scheme was delivered at zero cost to Camden Council. This was made possible by leveraging existing ECO funding. Lakehouse has existing frameworks with all of the big six utilities companies. Those strong relationships we have nurtured enabled us to not only secure contributing funding, but provide highly favourable rates to provide full funding.

Our resident satisfaction score for this scheme was 97%, delighting our client. We successfully ensured that Camden Council met its affordable warmth target and made sure that those affected by the improvement works were handled with care and consideration.

Lakehouse has subsequently delivered a second phase which comprises 31 solid wall multi-dwelling blocks across the borough, utilising ECO funding and GDHIF (for leaseholders) alongside client contributions.
