Fortem have been appointed to deliver planned improvements to Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) homes, worth up to £150m over 10 years.

Covering the north-east and south Lincolnshire areas, LHP residents will benefit from having improved facilities which will increase their home’s efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, whilst allowing them to live more comfortably.

The Decent Homes programme includes upgrading homes with measures such as bathroom and kitchen refurbishments, new air source heat systems, roof refurbishments, door renewals, external fencing, and path improvements, to circa 12,000 properties.

In order to improve their service, LHP held close consultations with residents to gather feedback on where improvements could be made. As a result, LHP appointed Fortem as its new planned works contractor.

Murray Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer at LHP said "We are excited to embark on this partnership with Fortem. Their expertise will be invaluable in delivering our Decent Homes programme. We believe that this collaboration will yield significant benefits for our residents, enhancing their living conditions and contributing to a more sustainable future."

Mike Hart, Executive Chairman at Fortem said, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Lincolnshire Housing Partnership to upgrade their stock to Decent Homes standard. Utilising our planned works experience, we will work collaboratively with local supply chain partners to deliver an efficient, high-quality scheme of work that will produce long term benefits for LHP’s residents.”
