Construction firm Southdale has launched a new division to provide energy efficiency upgrades to homes.
The company was formed in Halifax where it still has its head office and now in its 25th year it has grown into a housing specialist working mainly with local authorities and housing associations.
Its new Greendale business will deliver eco-funded projects into existing homes and also lead Southdale’s first move into offering planned maintenance for home owners and landlords.
Greendale is led by Nick O’Connor and Mark Pickles, who have joined the company as directors and the pair have provided eco enhancements and planned maintenance to more than 13,000 homes during their seven years together with Keepmoat.
Paul Moore, Managing Director of Southdale said: “During the last 25 years, Southdale has established itself as a house builder in the affordable homes market. We now have strong operations across the north of England. The launch of Greendale takes our growth in a new direction, expanding into the growing market which is developing around work covered by eco funding opportunities, as well as planned maintenance.
“This is an exciting move for Southdale when there is much positivity about what the future holds, as we look to build upon our success.”
Southdale employs more than 180 and operates from four regional centres, serving Yorkshire and the Humber, the North West, North East and the Midlands.
