Tower Hamlets Homes chief Gavin Cansfield said: “These funds will allow us to target hard to insulate’ properties, mainly high rise blocks of flats on estates. Improving wall insulation will reduce energy bills and cut CO2 emissions.”
The contractors are taking on trainees and apprentices from Tower Hamlets as part of the programme, with the chance of a permanent job in the contractors in the construction industry.
