Housing Executive tenants in Lurgan are having their homes modernised as part of a major investment totalling £532,000 to make them fit for the future.
Eighty-three properties at Killough Gardens and Levin Road are being fitted with new kitchens and bathrooms with extensive re-wiring and the work is due to be completed at the end of March.
Local resident Paula McConville has already had her home at Killough Gardens remodelled - and she’s thrilled with the result.
“It’s brilliant to have a bright new kitchen and bathroom, they have really modernised my home, so I would like to thank the Housing Executive for all their hard work. I am absolutely delighted,” she said
“Everything was done safely within Covid-19 guidelines, too. The workmen were very good at their jobs and courteous and it really put my mind at ease.
“My home has been given a much-needed facelift, everything looks so much brighter and up-to-date. It’s a pleasure to work in my kitchen now.”
Housing Executive patch manager for the area, Laura Hagan, said: “Kitchen and bathroom remodelling can be a daunting but exciting event for our tenants.
“Committed and professional workers have transformed these Housing Executive homes and delivered beautiful, functional and modern kitchens and bathrooms.
“In particular, new wiring gives real peace of mind to our tenants that their homes will be fit for purpose for a very long time,” she said.
“We’ve kept our tenants involved as part of the process. They’ve had had a one to one consultation with our staff to plan the layout of their new kitchen and bathroom as well as choosing their units and tiles.
“A big thank you goes to our tenants for their patience and perseverance and to contractor, PK Murphy, for their hard work. Well done to all involved.”
