Gosport Towers External Wall Insulation renewal for Hyde

“Our contractor partner, Axis Europe, has pulled out all the stops to engage with residents, particularly the most vulnerable, and making sure they are happy with work on their homes” – Hyde Housing Group Feb 2020

In May 2018, Hyde awarded Axis a Design & Build Contract for the replacement of 14,000m2 of External Wall Insulation to five high rise blocks in Gosport, Hampshire. Axis completed re-cladding on Garland Court and Harbour Tower at Christmas 2019; Hammond Court, Blake Court and Seaward Tower are scheduled to finish this spring (2020).

As the five blocks were fully occupied by 440 families during the works, our site-based team of Resident Liaison Officers conducted a continuous engagement programme with resident groups.
