Over 100 homes upgraded in Twinbrook

News
Housing Executive Patch Manager, Mairead Kelly, joins Housing Executive tenant Mr Mullan (centre) at his home in Twinbrook.

The Housing Executive is currently implementing a large scale modernisation programme across 104 homes in the Twinbrook area of West Belfast, with a view to making them ‘fit for the future.’

At a cost of £680,000, the twenty-one week scheme entails the fitting of new kitchens and bathrooms in the properties, along with extensive re-wiring throughout.

Sean O’Kane, Housing Executive Team Leader in the Dairy Farm office, said; “From an aesthetic point of view, the upgrades to the kitchens and bathrooms of these homes is a major improvement.

“The kitchens and bathrooms are very modern, striking and finished to a high standard.

“However, the overall work undertaken in each property – in particular the re-wiring and electrical aspects, gives real peace of mind to our tenants that their homes will be fit for use for a very long time.

“We’ve kept our tenants involved as part of the process – we consulted with them before work began and we also gave them a choice of kitchens and fittings.

“Initial feedback has already been overwhelmingly positive and we’ll continue to monitor the scheme as it proceeds.

“Our commitment to the Colin area is concrete – we have an office at Dairy Farm providing a vital access point for our customers and we will continue to look at ways to improve their living standards and their lives.”
