ENGIE and Gentoo partnership progresses with award of £16m improvement works 09 March 2020

Regeneration and energy specialist ENGIE has been appointed to deliver a variety of regeneration programmes by Sunderland-based housing association Gentoo Group.

As part of the group’s wider £317 million investment programme across its 29,000 home portfolio, the scope of the work will include a variety of modernisation and safety improvement work across a number of Gentoo buildings.

Furthermore, the scope of work includes the installation of new gas-condensing, energy-efficient combination boilers, and associated works to 1,000 properties in Washington as part of a district heating upgrade.

Lee Francis, area director at ENGIE, says: “Resident welfare is at the core of all these projects and it is important that all households feel safe and secure in their homes.

“We have a skilled team and vast experience in regeneration, which is further enhanced by our fantastic partnership with Gentoo. We have demonstrated our extensive abilities, with a number of projects already being delivered by us on Gentoo’s behalf.

"We’re currently re-roofing properties and repairing gable walls across thousands of properties in Houghton le Spring and Sunderland, whilst also installing ground source heat pumps to seven tower blocks in Sunderland.”

OE reported on the heat pump project in November.
