Lincoln development receives stunning upgrade
Shuttleworth House in the centre of Lincoln has received a stunning upgrade that will ensure future residents can benefit from warmer homes and lower bills.
Located in Lincoln's Stamp End development, Shuttleworth House is one of the tallest high rise properties in the city and for the last 18 months, efforts have been underway to update the building and ensure it is more sustainable moving forward.
An array of green measures have been implemented to help to reduce the overall CO2 output of the building, with residents now benefiting from improved internal ventilation systems, updated windows and the installation of extensive amounts of cavity wall and roof insulation throughout.
Each of the individual flats at Shuttleworth House have also been fitted with the latest energy monitors to better inform residents on their energy usage, while the property will also benefit from the installation of a new biomass boiler and heating system to further cut its carbon output in the years ahead.
Bob Ledger, director of housing and communities at Lincoln City Council, said: "This exciting project has seen the city council invest £3.2 million in refurbishing the tower block.
"As well as extending the life of the building, these improvements go some way to creating a more sustainable city.
"The work has gone incredibly well and we are very proud of the outcome."
