Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP) has signed a contract worth almost £9 million to invest in new windows for more than 2,000 properties.

Tenants in 2,200 homes across Dumfries and Galloway will benefit from the installation of new windows to their properties as a result of the award of the contract to Anglian Building Products Ltd.

The programme is the second of two major investment contracts to be signed recently, with the insulation, rendering and roofing contract signed several weeks ago.

The programme will replace older window units with new PVC double-glazed, high performance windows to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel bills for tenants.

Robert Higgins, chairman of DGHP, said: “The multi-million programme will provide much needed improvements across the region and shows our commitment to improve tenants’ homes. We look forward to work beginning on the contract with Anglian.”

The programme, which will begin in the summer of this year, is expected to last two years with an option to extend the contract for a further two years. We will be in touch with our tenants directly in due course about works being carried out.

Steve Hoadley, Anglian’s managing director, said: “We’re delighted to have won the contract and to be working with DGHP. We are looking forward to getting started on the works.”
