Half year results Ballast Nedam: Challenge to Improve pays off
The renovation is a major step in achieving the sustainability goals for the municipality of Eindhoven. These single-family homes currently still have a low energy label, but the renovation will increase the energy label by 3 to 4 steps.
In close consultation with the residents, the houses are insulated and the facades improved. If necessary and if the residents agree, bathrooms, kitchens and toilets will also be renovated. “Together with the residents, we map out the activities for each home,” says Jack Koch, Managing Director Ballast Nedam Zuid. “In the past, the client took care of this inventory, but now that we responsible for this, we can make smart use of our capacity to renovate a large number of houses at the same time.”
The work will be carried out simultaneously in groups of 75 homes. After each group, the four contractors discuss the process with Woonbedrijf. Ingrid de Boer, Managing Director of Woonbedrijf is pleased with this innovative approach: “Living confortably is our first priority. Together we ensure that good agreements are made with every resident and contractor. Before, during and after the renovation work.”
This autumn residents will be notified of what the renovation means for them. The renovation will be carried out if at least 70% of the residents approve the plan. Ballast Nedam and other contractors will each work in their 'own' neighborhood and guide the residents through the entire process. Woonbedrijf will start with the first houses at the beginning of 2022.
