Housing Landlord of the Year Award

Rykneld Homes was named Housing Landlord of the Year in the East Midlands Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Awards. 

The awards celebrate high performance in the housing sector and are open to both public and private sector organisations.

This is the latest accolade for Rykneld Homes and we are very proud that our organisation has been judged to be amongst the best both regionally and nationally.

In 2017 we won a national Housing Innovation Award for our Community Engagement programme, and have also been named winners in the Building Communities in the East Midlands Awards for our work to regenerate non-traditionally built homes. 

Our HR Team was pipped for the Award of Best Training Programme, and our Customers Services Team were runners-up for Team of the Year.

Sustainability and Renewable Technologies Award

Our new build and regeneration work has earned us national acclaim.

Rykneld Homes had a fantastic night at the Building Communities East Midlands Awards on 24 February 2017 – winning best Sustainability and Renewable Technologies Project for our outstanding regeneration work to improve non-traditional properties.  We were also shortlisted for Best Project for our External Wall Insulation work in North Wingfield.

This is a great achievement for us and the teams involved and goes to show that we are amongst the best organisations operating in our region.  The Building Communities Awards are open to both public and private sector organisations and are about celebrating high performance and businesses that make a positive difference.

Rykneld’s success in the awards reinforces our reputation as an organisation delivering high quality services which compare with the best at both national and regional level.

At the 2017 Housing Innovation Awards, we were in the top three for Most Innovative Housing Provider up to 10,000 units! 

Together with local company Polar Windows and Profile 22 our work to refurbish Stonelow Green Flats in Dronfield was in the top three Most Innovative Regeneration projects .

The Housing Innovation Awards celebrate the pioneering spirit in housing and highlight examples of inventive and original schemes or services.

In 2016 we were named winner in the Large Scale Project of the Year category at the Energy Efficiency and Retrofit regional awards in Sheffield.  We were delighted to win a prestigious award for our Regeneration work to non-traditional homes across the district.

This award was for our project to fit External Wall Insulation (EWI) to 334 Reema homes in North Wingfield, Pilsley, Dronfield, Tupton, Holmesfield and Unstone.  In addition to fitting the insulation the majority of homes had new roofs and many underwent window replacement and had new heating systems fitted.

The work has made the houses easier to heat and keep warm and helps address the issue of fuel poverty for some tenants.

The EWI work was carried out by our contractors Westdale Services who together with energy suppliers EDF Energy had secured Green Deal ECO funding for part of the project.

In 2015 we were shortlisted in the national Housing Innovation Awards for our work to regenerate 70 flats at Stonelow Green in Dronfield.

In 2013 we became Gold Award winners in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations Pride Awards in the category Community Relations. This was for our work on the Tarran new build projects in Killamarsh and Eckington.

The judges were impressed with the sensitive way a highly emotive project was dealt with.  Tenants and residents were kept fully informed and encouraged to get involved in the project development – including the choosing of a contractor.

In 2014 we were shortlisted in the national Housing Innovation Awards in the category Most Innovative Refurbishment Project. This was for our regeneration work on more than 200 Trusteel properties in Wingerworth and Holmgate.
