As part of the Council's ongoing commitment to achieve and maintain the Scottish Housing Quality Standard and Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) and based on our stock condition surveys, 2015/16 sees the launch of our new window replacement programme which will run initially over the next 4 years.
Modern and secure energy efficient windows will be installed by Sidey Glaziers Ltd initially in approximately 130 homes over the coming year in various locations throughout Clackmannanshire. Tenants involved will be lettered to advise when this work is due to be carried out in their home.
The council embarked on an extensive window replacement programme from the mid-1980s onwards and many of these original window frames are coming to the end of their projected life cycle.
This year saw the commencement of the councils Window Replacement programme. This was the first window replacement programme carried out by the council since 1996.
Phase 1 of the programme successfully upgraded 129 properties within Alloa and Alva. Tenant feedback to date has been very positive to date with 95.2% "very satisfied" following completion of the works. In 2016/17 a further 552 homes are scheduled for window replacement within areas in Alloa, Cambus and Coalsnaughton. This project will be completed by both contractor Sidey Glazing and our own Property Contracts Unit.
