Louise Feely, Housing Asset and Investment Manager, pictured collecting the award with Aaron Marshall, Brian Thorburn and David Stevenson from her team, said: "My team all work really hard to deliver high quality improvements to our council houses and they lead the field in terms of innovative approaches to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel bills for our tenants. 

"I'm absolutely delighted that their efforts have been recognised at a national level, and I want to thank everyone involved in the Blackstoun Oval retrofit project for their hard work."
