Up to 3,500 council homes in Sheffield are set to receive an external makeover, with 5,000 new windows and 2,000 new doors being installed across the city.
The £5.4 million refurbishment programme is to be provided by Wates Living Space Maintenance, on behalf of Sheffield Council.
The plans also include a commitment to offer employment and training opportunities for Sheffield people, with a city-based supply chain of suppliers and subcontractors.
Coun Jayne Dunn, cabinet member for housing, said: “We’re investing in our council homes to make sure they are safe, secure and warm.
“We’re also making them more energy efficient to save people money – as well as being better for the environment.
“This work will be a boost for our homes and for the area, as it will create jobs and apprenticeship opportunities.
“I look forward to seeing the results which are part of our £300million investment plans into council homes.”
John Flower, the Business Director of Wates Living Space Maintenance North, said: “We have a fantastic team in place, primed and ready to ensure the successful delivery of the council’s multi-million pound revamp.”
