Contract wins help expand ENGIE’s presence in Renfrewshire

A recent ENGIE ‘Meet the Buyer’ event

ENGIE has announced it has won “multiple” contracts across Renfrewshire, which will see homes, schools and public buildings benefit from refurbishment and maintenance works.

The energy, services and regeneration specialist has been appointed contractor for the multi-million-pound Johnstone Castle project, which will deliver 95 energy-efficient council homes following the demolition of the existing tenements.

ENGIE has also landed a contract to re-roof the local authority’s headquarters at Renfrewshire House and the roofs at St Catherine’s and Houston Primary Schools, as part of a £1.9 million contract. The buildings will receive additional roof insulation and waterproof membranes, as well as the reinstatement of solar panels.

ENGIE will also deliver major maintenance and refurbishment contracts including approximately £12.5 million investment in kitchens, bathrooms and heating systems in council homes over the next four years.

As part of all new contracts, ENGIE said it has committed to offering employment and training opportunities for local people; as well as supporting community organisations, businesses and social enterprises.

Brian Pettigrew, regional managing director for ENGIE’s Places & Communities division said, “We’re delighted to be expanding our presence in Renfrewshire and working on some significant projects as appointed by the council.  They have a steadfast approach to local investment which is clear from the sheer volume of work they are delivering within their local communities.

“The response from local people has been fantastic as they see the benefit that planned investment brings.  We are looking forward to working on these projects, as well as bidding for future contracts, as we contribute to the Scottish Government and Council ambition to deliver more affordable homes across all of Renfrewshire’s communities.”
