Airey Properties Case Study

Airey style properties were built after World War II to solve the housing shortage. Unfortunately, the budget building materials used made the homes draughty and aesthetically displeasing.

Selby District Council commissioned Keepmoat for the £1.3 million refurbishment of 33 Airey Homes. The project saw an experienced team, who have improved a total of more than 450 Airey homes across the UK to date, remove the concrete panels on the outside of the homes and replace them with brick. The homes were also given new insulation, double glazed windows and new doors with a number of properties also benefitting from new kitchens and rewiring.

Residents have already noticed a huge difference in the temperature of their homes, and they can expect significantly lower energy bills long term. Thanks to the success of phase one of the scheme, Keepmoat is now in the process of regenerating a further 50 Airey homes across the district.
