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
Works have now begun and Durkan are the contractors who have been appointed to carry out the works. All windows should be completed within 12 months.
