Magenta Living’s asset management team were awarded ‘project of the year’ at the National Housing Maintenance Forum’s recent annual dinner.
The housing provider won the award for its development and implementation of a post-decency investment strategy called Project Save, from which emerged the need for neighbourhood regeneration as well as addressing the challenge of fuel poverty among some tenants.
Project Save was launched to regenerate three of Magenta Living’s underperforming neighbourhoods through low-carbon retrofit investment and tenant education. Using a range of investment and neighbourhood initiatives, Magenta Living has blended low carbon retrofit investment with neighbourhood partnership to improve the lives of over 1,000 of its tenants.
Richard Woolfall, assistant director of asset management, Magenta Living, said, “I lead a team of 40, all of whom have made a significant impact on improving standards for our tenants through Project Save. To be awarded this accolade demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best possible maintenance service.”
