Willmott Dixon scoops £60m Green Deal fit out scheme in Hull

Hull City Council has appointed Willmott Dixon as preferred bidder for a £60m Green Deal and ECO partnership.

Willmott Dixon will retrofit 3,000 homes in the Preston Road and Orchard Park regeneration areas of Hull as part of the deal.

Refurbishment by the contractor will include the installation of external solid wall insulation, along with other forms of insulation, plus draught-proofing, double glazing and renewable energy generation, such as solar panels and heat pumps.

The contract is the latest ECO and Green Deal win for Willmott Dixon. The company is already working with the West Yorkshire Combined Authorities, the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities, Leeds Federated Housing Association and Golden Gates Housing Trust on similar deals.

Commenting on the deal, Rob Lambe, Willmott Dixon Energy Services managing director said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Hull City Council to transform homes across the city – it’s a major step forward for the Green Deal. 

“Our work to install energy efficiency improvements will help residents reduce their fuel bills and live in warmer, healthier homes.”

The number of Green Deal plans registered grew by a record number of nearly 1,500 in October, according to the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
