Cheltenham Borough Homes and Nationwide Windows & Doors Celebrate 2000th Property Upgrade
Two years into a partnership which will see 5,000 Cheltenham Borough Homes (CBH) managed properties benefit from new windows and doors, the ALMO recently celebrated the 2000th property milestone with a presentation to tenant Cathy Holder. According to Julian Denslow, CBH’s Asset & Investment Manager, the project is proof that a collaborative approach to housing stock improvements pays dividends.
Julian commented: “At the outset when we procured it in-house, CBH had three key objectives for this window and door replacement project: To provide high spec quality products, installed to the highest quality finish, with a partner who shares their vision and values for delivering an excellent service and best value. The Nationwide Windows Ltd team delivering on this programme is performing well across all these areas. It’s great to hear how delighted Cathy Holder is with her new windows and I’m sure she will join the other happy CBH tenants and leaseholders who have already benefited from new windows. We are looking forward to the programme continuing into its third year and with furthering our successful partnership with Nationwide Windows.”
Adrian Pavey, Commercial Director at Nationwide Windows Ltd comments: “ We acknowledge the pressures faced by social housing landlords; with ongoing rent reduction and expectations to maintain investment into their housing stock. This is where innovation and collaborative working, as we’ve done with Julian and his team in Cheltenham, pays dividends. The strength of a relationship is built with a good team and a group who are happy, work well together and deliver a great service.”
