New boilers heating Berwick homes

We’re keeping tenants warm in their homes and helping them better manage their energy use this winter with a £250,000 programme of work to install new energy efficient boilers.

Our in-house construction services team is managing the latest phase of our on-going two-year boiler replacement programme at 166 homes in Berwick.

Old boilers are being removed and replaced with the latest Ideal Heating Logic combi boilers and new thermostats.

Our sub-contracting team from K Dixon Building Services in Berwick are also checking radiators in properties and replacing any that are not working.

The programme of work in the Berwick area has reached Tweedmouth, where Commercial Manager Mark Brewis and Project Manager Carl Dickson (pictured) inspected the latest boiler installation at a tenant’s home.

Mark said: “The new boilers we are fitting are more energy efficient, helping to cut bills and bring peace of mind for tenants which is a great feeling for our team, seeing the difference it makes to people’s lives.

“The work we are carrying out in the Berwick area is the latest phase in a rolling programme of work following on from our programme to fit more than 350 new boilers into homes in the Ashington area.”

Simon Grylls, Head of Construction Services, is overseeing the programme, supported by Site Manager Russell Bendelow, Mark and Carl.

Bernicia is committed to delivering £63m worth of major works to improve our existing homes and neighbourhoods over the next four years – and to meet a better energy efficiency rating for the significant majority of our housing stock by 2025-26, five years ahead of the Government’s target.
