Over 3100 Housing Executive homes double glazed to date

7th December 2015

Under our two year Northern Ireland Housing Executive Double Glazing contract we have been installing double glazing to occupied dwellings within the north region of Northern Ireland. We have significantly improved the living conditions of over three thousand families and by doing so we have helped the Housing Executive deliver their warm homes initiative.
Under this framework Dixons are responsible for delivery of the complete package from design to completion. At the outset of each scheme we survey each property and present our design proposals and associated costs to the NIHE for approval.  Once agreed we carry out tenant consultations, install the windows, then carry out tenant satisfaction surveys to review our performance.
To date our site teams have fitted double glazing in 3114 No. homes, a total of over 19,000 new windows installed since our Framework started! Our 12 squads of window fitters have worked all over the region and have installed windows in areas as wide apart as Strabane, Coleraine and Larne.  
Although the two year Double Glazing Framework contract ended on the 4th November 2015, we are currently delivering 5 further glazing schemes which were agreed and procured under this framework. Our squads are currently installing windows to 1200 properties under these 5 schemes, with the works due for completion early in 2016. These works will conclude the Double Glazing Framework contract.
