Matt Bundy, who was previously Head of Major Works at Westminster City Council, will lead on Orbit’s large-scale investment works across its property portfolio, including its decarbonisation programme.

During 2021/22, Orbit invested over £81.5 million in its Property Repairs and Capital Investment programmes and has committed to ensuring all homes are EPC Band C or above by 2030.

“Despite the impact of numerous national and global issues, Orbit has continued to invest in its homes and communities,” Matt commented. “Orbit is continuously assessing how it can improve existing homes and deliver a better experience for customers. I’m really excited to see how we can develop the delivery of our major works programmes as part of our commitment to ensure that everyone has a safe and comfortable home and continue on our journey to improve the energy efficiency of our housing stock as we progress towards the UK’s 2050 net zero carbon target.”
