Procast Group Leads £2.4M Energy Retrofit in Rosneath
Procast Group has won a contract to bring £2.4 million worth of energy-efficient improvements to 36 homes in an Argyll & Bute village. How will this help tenants to reduce their energy bills?

The project win has been secured with Dunbritton Housing Association, and the plan is to bring 36 homes in Rosneath up to standard through retrofitting.

Collaboration has been fundamental in securing the funding needed 

This significant multi-million-pound project, which will follow Procurement for Housing (PfH) Scotland frameworks, is funded 50 per cent by Dunbritton Housing Association.

The other £1.2 million is coming from Procast Group which has secured ECO4 funding to drive the project forward.

Derek Innes, Owner and Managing Director of Procast Group, said: “We have been working with Dunbritton Housing Association for more than a year in an effort to get this project off the ground and, thanks to their support and the funding, we have managed to secure a deal.”

Continuing, Derek added: “This is our first project with them, and we are excited to see what the partnership can achieve. The positive effect this project will have on the tenants of these 26 homes is massive, and the energy efficiencies it will drive forward is significant.”

It is something we are incredibly proud to be leading the way within Scotland and the North of England.

Energy-efficiency upgrades will be implemented to create greener homes

Procast Group has said that the project will take three months to complete, and it will see the properties fully upgraded to the PAS2035 standard.

This will be achieved through the fitting of an External Wall Insulation (EWI) system, triple-glazed doors and windows, new insulation, mechanical ventilation, air source heat pumps, and photovoltaic (PV) panels.

Working in partnership with Dunbritton Housing Association, PfH Scotland, Framed Estates Architects and Structherm, once completed the project will have a hugely positive impact on living conditions for tenants as well as help to reduce their energy bills.

Paul Sweeney, Asset Manager at Dunbritton Housing Association said: “The Association is delighted to announce the retrofit project to 36 of our properties in the Rosneath area.

“We have worked hard to find a solution to bring these properties up to the EESSH standard. We are confident that this project will provide our tenants with warmer, greener and more energy-efficient homes.”

Seeing more retrofitting projects like this one take place will be fundamental in not only transforming homes so they are fit for the future but also helping tenants reduce their energy bills.
