Govanhill Housing Association

Making an impact by providing local people with more energy efficient homes and reduced fuel bills

In partnership with Glasgow City Council, Govanhill Housing Association and Scottish Power, Everwarm, part of the Lakehouse Group, has transformed 18 tenement blocks in Govanhill, Glasgow. 108 hard to treat properties have benefited from improvements which include external wall insulation, new roofing, new soffits and fascias, loft insulation, partial window and door replacement, and boiler upgrades.

Over 50% of the properties were privately owned but the improvement package was so attractive that all 55 private householders agreed to opt in, with some of them taking advantage of funding secured via the Private Sector Housing Grant.

We coordinated the funding model which included four streams: UHIS, ECO. PSHG, and even owners/landlords.
