Our contracting department has reported a noticeable increase in the volume of work coming through for tender recently. The results of this are now apparent and we have been successful in winning four contracts in the last week alone.

Two of the contracts require flat roof insulation; one is for 50 new build units in Kent and the other is for 30 new build units in Harrow.

We were also successful in winning a contract for external wall insulation to 14 new build units in West London. And finally, we were awarded a contract for loft insulation to Leyton College.

Statistics just released reveal that the last 3 months have seen the fastest rate of housebuilding since the crash in 2008. It seems that a strong and sustainable upturn has taken place in the construction industry and Essex Insulation is very pleased to be part of that increase in activity.
