Breyer to Help Lambeth Decarbonise Homes

Our Renew team is preparing to deliver £3.6million worth of decarbonisation improvements for Lambeth Council. With the cost of living going up, it couldn’t be a better time for the residents benefitting from the associated increase in energy efficiency.

The Lambeth properties are currently undergoing RdSAP and Retrofit Assessment surveys to determine the specific requirements of each home. Those selected for the works will be subject to energy efficient measures that will lead to a reduction in energy consumption, as well as an improvement in the thermal performance and air quality within their home.

The programme, which will be delivered in line with the requirements of PAS2030 and PAS2035, will ensure all homes being improved achieve a “C” rating on the EPC. Improvements will include a range of decarbonisation works, including Underfloor, Loft, Cavity, External and Internal Wall Insulation, Solar PV installation, Low Energy Lighting, Air Source Heat Pumps and Kitchen, Bathroom, Windows and Doors replacements.

Breyer will be working alongside Retrofit Assessors and Retrofit Co-ordinators to deliver the design and improvements for the project.

Cllr Maria Kay, Lambeth’s Cabinet Member for Better Homes and Reducing Homelessness, said: “This is an important piece of work for Lambeth Council as we work to help cut people’s energy bills during this Cost of Living crisis and help reduce emissions as we work to become Net Zero compatible by 2030.

“It will benefit more than 250 of our council housing tenants living in some of our least energy efficient homes. I thank Breyer for coming on board so we can get this work completed as quickly as possible, with the project set to start in January.”
