Double success for Wales & West Housing at Welsh Housing Awards 2022

One of our decarb projects in West Wales and our Maes Y Môr extra care scheme in Aberystwyth have won awards at this year’s Welsh Housing Awards.

The award for Sustainability in Housing was presented to our project to retrofit 6 homes at Glannant, Pembrokeshire to trial the most efficient ways to reduce heat loss and carbon emissions.

The work was led by our Property Services team in partnership with the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) team at the Welsh School of Architecture.

At Maes Y Môr extra care scheme in Aberystwyth, the teams won the Supporting Active Living Award for both the design and lay-out of the building itself as well as the person-centred approach to care, support and wellbeing which is transforming the lives of the 62 people of all ages who live there.

WWH Group Chief Executive Anne Hinchey said: “This is a well-deserved result.

“At Glannant, the work carried out to insulate the fabric of the homes, upgrade heating and ventilation and fit solar PV panels and battery storage systems, is making the homes more comfortable and cheaper to heat for our residents living there as well as reducing carbon emissions to help the environment.”

“At Maes Y Môr, the extra care scheme stands out not only because of its spectacular location, overlooking the harbour, but also all the work the staff do to help the residents lead full, active, happy, and healthy lives.

“I am so proud of our teams who deserve these awards for all the hard work they do to make a difference to our residents every day.”
WWH Group Chief Executive Anne Hinchey
