15 February 2024 Lambeth London Living scoops ‘Project of the Year’ Award

Lambeth London Living has picked up a brand new award from the London Housing Consortium (LHC) as it strives to bring its properties up to the government set Decent Homes Standard.

The LHC handed its first “Project of the Year” award to Lambeth London Living for a window replacement scheme which was described as delivering Decent Homes efficiently and sustainably without compromising on quality.

The scheme involved double glazing windows and doors on its Westbury and Mawbey Brough estates to bring them up to the standard.

£1.1 million was spent on the contract with Apollo London, as procured through the LHC.

The standard of workmanship was deemed excellent by the judges.

Since using the LHC, Lambeth London Living has managed to make savings of more than £5 million across a range of projects.

Keith Hardy, Lambeth London Living’s Major Works Manager said, “We are very proud to receive the award and extremely pleased that the savings made can be used to improve more of our tenants’ homes. Using the LHC enabled all the work to be carried out more quickly and efficiently than if we were to use traditional tendering routes.”

Describing the project as a phenomenal success, Neil Barker LHC Head of Business Development said, “Not only does this project demonstrate the advantages of using an LHC supply chain, but it also portrays the dedication and close partnership approach of the appointed principle and specialist contractors, together with Lambeth London Living. For these reasons it is a very worthwhile winner of LHC’s first Project of the Year award, as a showcase of outstanding work for the ultimate benefit of residents.”

Cathy Deplessis, Lambeth London Living’s Chief Executive added, “This work is in line with our company vision which is to deliver high quality homes and excellent service to Lambeth tenants, leaseholders and freeholders.”

The LHC annual awards were held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel, London, on Tuesday, 9 February, and attended by 200 public sector officers and LHC suppliers.

The other organisations shortlisted for the Project of the Year award were Bowater Building Products for work at Raglan Housing Association and Moores Furniture Group for work at Peabody Trust.
