Homes, schools and pub­lic build­ings across Ren­frew­shire will ben­e­fit from ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment and main­te­nance works af­ter a main con­trac­tor was ap­pointed.

ENGIE’s re­gen­er­a­tion busi­ness was re­cently con­firmed as the con­trac­tor for the multi-mil­lion-pound John­stone Cas­tle project, which will de­liver 95 new en­ergy-ef­fi­cient coun­cil homes fol­low­ing the de­mo­li­tion of the ex­ist­ing ten­e­ments.

The firm has also se­cured a con­tract to re-roof the lo­cal author­ity’s head­quar­ters at Ren­frew­shire House and the roofs at St Cather­ine’s and Houston Pri­mary Schools, as part of a £1.9 mil­lion con­tract.

The build­ings will each re­ceive ad­di­tional roof in­su­la­tion and water­proof mem­branes, as well as the re­in­state­ment of so­lar pan­els.

ENGIE has also been ap­pointed to de­liver ma­jor main­te­nance and re­fur­bish­ment con­tracts in­clud­ing ap­prox­i­mately £12.5 mil­lion in­vest­ment in kitchens, bath­rooms and en­ergy ef­fi­cient heat­ing sys­tems in coun­cil homes over the next four years.

As part of all new con­tracts, ENGIE has com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing em­ploy­ment and train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal peo­ple; as well as sup­port­ing com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, com­mu­nity busi­nesses and so­cial en­ter­prises.

Brian Pet­ti­grew, re­gional man­ag­ing di­rec­tor for ENGIE’s Places and Com­mu­ni­ties divi­sion, said:“We’re de­lighted to be ex­pand­ing our pres­ence in Ren­frew­shire and work­ing on some sig­nif­i­cant projects as ap­pointed by the coun­cil.

“They have a stead­fast ap­proach to lo­cal in­vest­ment which is clear from the sheer vol­ume of work they are de­liv­er­ing within their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Coun­cil­lor John Shaw, con­vener of Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil’s Fi­nance, Re­sources and Cus­tomer Ser­vices Pol­icy Board, said:“We strive to achieve best value on all the goods, ser­vices and works we pur­chase as a lo­cal author­ity to en­sure the projects we de­liver are of the high­est qual­ity for our res­i­dents.

“ENGIE have been suc­cess­ful on a num­ber of forth­com­ing con­tracts and I look for­ward to see­ing these projects de­liv­ered suc­cess­fully in Ren­frew­shire.”
