Energy efficiency

They carried out the manufacture, supply, and installation of the windows and doors. Sidey’s Solartherm windows and doors provide EESSH standard performance to the residents whilst refreshing the appearance of the properties.


Partnership working

Sidey placed long term sustainability ahead of short-term gain when working with Clackmannanshire Council on this project, as well as, an added emphasis on tenant engagement.
