Gosport Towers External Wall Insulation renewal for Hyde

In May 2018, Hyde awarded Axis a Design & Build Contract for the replacement of 18,000m2 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 finished this spring (2020).

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

“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, February 2020

“It was really important to us that we used quality material and quality contractors” – Jack le Page, Head of Safer Homes Assurance, Hyde

“We know now we are 110% safe” – Gosport resident

“This has been a true partnership” – Walter Shave, Axis’ Senior Contract Manager
