Residents in four high rise blocks of flats in Armley are set to benefit from improved and more economical heating.
Leeds City Council this week awarded builders Cenergist Limited a £3.6 million contract to install new heating and hot water systems in the four Poplar Mount and Poplar Court blocks.
The work will see energy efficient ground source heating pumps being installed.
Sprinklers will be retrofitted to all four buildings at the same time, adding a further layer of fire protection.
The full council report can be read in full here.
Ground source heat pumps have also been installed in the last year at four other West Leeds high rise blocks – Heights West and Heights East in Wortley, and Westerly Croft and Westerly Rise in Armley. Rycroft Green, Rycroft Towers, Rycroft Court and Rycroft Place in Swinnow have also had the system installed, along with Queenswood Heights and Queenswood Court in Kirkstall.
