Syntrus Achmea Real Estate is going to make 182 residential properties in Soest sustainable. The residential properties, which are owned by the Pensioenfonds voor het Slagersbedrijf ["Pension Fund for the Butchery Industry"], currently have an energy label C on average. After the work has been carried out, this will be A+ or A (for a small number of properties). Tenants will see this reflected in a lower energy bill and a more comfortable home.
The family houses in the Overhees neighbourhood in Soest, built in 1984, will be provided with better roof, façade and floor insulation. The sustainability work will be combined with maintenance activities, which will also address draught issues and improvements in air circulation. The activities will be performed by Dura Vermeer and will be completed by the summer of next year.
Syntrus Achmea RE&F renovates and makes its clients´ properties more sustainable in locations which are expected to remain attractive in the longer term. In addition to Soest, properties in Alkmaar, Badhoevedorp and Leek (Groningen) are also scheduled for upgrading this year. A total of 400 residential properties will be modernised and receive a far better energy label.
"Increasing sustainability matches our clients' policies," says Peter Appeljan, Director Residential Investments at Syntrus Achmea RE&F. "It contributes to the value development of the properties, offers tenants more comfort and contributes towards preventing further global warming. In this way, the knife cuts three ways."
