March 17, 2011 - PRLog -- Defence Estates (DE) has awarded energy saving specialist Mark Group, contracts worth £2.2 million to install external wall insulation measures on properties at Strensall Park, York and Poole in Dorset.

The two contracts have been awarded to Mark Group as the UK’s largest installer of energy saving measures, as the Ministry of Defence (MOD) strives to improve the thermal efficiency of its housing stock nationwide.

The properties at both sites are of solid wall construction and external wall insulation measures installed by Mark Group will not only help to reduce the MOD’s carbon emissions, but also lower energy bills, improve comfort levels for residents and regenerate the external appearance of the properties.

Justine Biggs, Mark Group Business Development Manager, said: “External wall insulation is a specialist application and ideal for the housing stock at both Strensall Park and Poole.  We are honoured to have been awarded these contracts for the Ministry of Defence as they reflect the investment we have placed in training new technicians, the relationships we have built with leading industry suppliers and the quality of workmanship we have delivered for our other public sector clients.”

Work is already well underway at Strensall Park and Mark Group will start installing measures at Poole later in the spring.

Deputy Head of Defence Estates Operations Housing (Estate Management), Mike Starnes, said: “Supporting our Armed forces and their families is the top priority for Defence Estates. Improving insulation is just one of our simple, but effective, environmental initiatives designed to improve the quality of accommodation for our Service families by providing a more comfortable home with lower energy bills.”

External wall insulation can save up to £385 a year on energy bills and reduce carbon emissions by around 1.9 tonnes annually.* For further information visit
