Our tenants in the Ainsworth area of West Belfast are benefitting from new double glazing, making their homes much warmer.
The scheme, costing over £95,000, was on site for eight weeks, and 67 homes now have new double glazing throughout their home.
Gordon Reilly, West Belfast Housing Services Manager, is very pleased with the high standard of work carried out by the contractor, PK Murphy, and said:
“This is a boost for Shankill residents, I am delighted that we have been able to progress this scheme. Over the years homes in the West of the City have been upgraded and maintained regularly, and in this contract the single glazed windows that have now reached the end of their useful life are being replaced with uPVC double glazed units. By replacing them now tenants will benefit from greater energy efficiency, noise reduction, warmer homes, and lower heating costs in their homes.”
Mrs Gorman, a tenant from Mayo Street, was happy with her new windows, saying:
“I am really pleased with my new windows, my home is much warmer now.”
The completion of this scheme means that all our homes in the Shankill area are double glazed.
