The Group transforms North East housing estate

Homes in an area of Sunderland are more modern and energy efficient due to the Group's significant investment.

Following the refurbishment of ten properties, residents living in Easington Lane now live in more desirable homes.

Working in partnership with Esh Living, we have transformed the appearance of the homes after completing major external works. The 13-week project included the renewal of external windows, doors, boundary walls, render and cladding and is part of our programme to continually invest in customers’ homes.

Gentoo Group’s Project Manager, Steve Robertson, said: “It has been a great external scheme to be involved with, I am very proud of the design of the finished properties and the long-term benefits this will bring our customers. Thank you to all involved from Gentoo’s Asset Management Team and Esh Living for delivering a successful scheme.”

Thousands of customers across Sunderland are benefitting from the Group's four-year investment plan which is well underway and includes the replacement of windows, doors and kitchens, roofing and external wall repairs across Gentoo’s housing stock.

Brian Anderson, Esh Living’s Contracts Manager, added: “It’s great to have been involved in another successful scheme with Gentoo Group where we have carried out improvement works to properties in the Sunderland area making them more modern and energy efficient.”
