Curo – Compton Dando & Pensford

Low Carbon Exchange were appointed by Curo Group to carry out a range of retrofit works to 23 off-gas rural properties at Compton Dando and Pensford in the South West. This was awarded as a one-off project under the West Of England Combined Authority, requiring compliance to PAS2035 standards.

Location: Compton Dando & Pensford
Duration: 1+ Year (2023 – Ongoing)
Value: £1.4 Million
Expertise: CWI, Windows & Doors, Quantum Heaters, Solar PV
Sector: Social Housing

A full fabric first approach was adopted to ensure maximum thermal efficiency of the properties. Heating surveys were conducted to determine correct sizing of Quantum systems, and temporary heating was implemented during works to ensure residents comfort.

On site we identified failed cavities in multiple properties, requiring more urgent attention to ensure successful retrofitting. These were extracted fully and cleared of any rubble, before refilling with ThermaBead. Window and door replacements were delivered by nominated subcontractor Anglian who designed, surveyed and installed composite doors and high energy efficiency Windows to PAS2035 standards. Solar PV systems ranging from 3.2 to 4kw systems were installed with Solax inverters in loft spaces. Consumer units were all upgraded and fitted diverting excess energy to existing hot water tanks, new interlinked smoke and heat detectors were fitted. We facilitated the trusted subcontractor for solar PV works, alongside delivery of structural roof strengthening to accommodate panels. Full roof replacements were also carried out by our trusted subcontractors to a full Redland specification using new tiles.

We took time to discuss the process of delivery, timescales, and addressed concerns with residents. As with all of our clients we assisted in the completion of forecasts and milestone related paperwork to help ensure funding was on track and reported successfully.

  • Average EPC rating of B (Increased from E&D). (Funding requirement for this project)

  • Engagement days held on site utilising our Marquee, for residents education which increased access and scheme uptake rates.
