2019 will be the second of our three year programme to carry out works to ensure all our properties meet the Arches Home Standard.
Year two will be no less busy than year one with a full programme focussing on bathrooms, kitchens and adding showers over baths to homes that currently don’t have one. In addition, there will be works to 90 properties for fencing, gates or boundary finishes that require repairs or replacement. 200 properties will have an asbestos survey carried out, and last but not least all properties by the end of July 2019 will have battery or mains smoke alarms and through 2019 we will be rolling out our program to fit carbon monoxide detectors in every home.
We have partnered with a new contractor Novus Property Solutions to deliver our investment program who, as well as doing this, has already started working with us in May this year on an external painting program concentrated in Darnall and Tinsley which will see 244 homes painted.
The first properties in this years’ investment program, with a total spend of over £ 1 million, will be starting on 1st July 2019 with works continuing right through to December;
162 showers above baths
Kitchen Refurbished in Year 1
