Upgrades for kitchens in Lisburn
Published: Thur, 25 Jun 2015
As part of the our programme of investment, over £400,000 is being spent replacing kitchens in Lisburn.
We are replacing 73 kitchens in houses, flats and bungalows in the Hill Street area of Lisburn over the coming weeks.
Working closely with our local staff and in partnership with consultants, JCP Consulting, our tenants have already been fully consulted on how their new kitchen will look. The scheme started earlier this month and is expected to last around 21 weeks. Customers have selected their new kitchen units and worktops from a range of options, and kitchen layouts will be improved, where necessary, to accommodate modern day appliances and living.
We appointed a local contractor, PK Murphy, to carry out the works to homes, and they appointed a Customer Liaison Officer who has undergone one to one consultation with tenants before the work begins in their homes.
Lisburn local office manager, Avril Shields, said:
“The Housing Executive remains committed to improving housing conditions in the Hill Street area of Lisburn, and this further investment underpins that commitment. Consultation remains a key element of any successful scheme and to that end we have worked closely with our residents developing this scheme. It is important that tenants’ homes can cater for all aspects of modern day living and we believe that the provision of new kitchens is one excellent way of achieving this.
“The partnership with JCP Consulting and PK Murphy will ensure that the scheme progresses with minimum disruption for our tenants.”
The scheme is running as planned, and is expected to complete at the end of October.
