We are replacing the windows with new double-glazed windows. This will improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, make it cheaper to heat homes, and help to reduce damp and condensation.
For Parkview and Lenses towers we'll be creating a 'pilot flat' at Maplin House to help assess the designs for the windows, balcony screens and improvements to the ventilation systems.
We have also instructed a contractor, Martek, to carry out concrete condition surveys. Martek will be using abseiling equipment to inspect the outside of the towers so they can determine what concrete repairs are required
Work will start in September 2018 and expect it to take around 18 months to complete.
