Hillhead completes final phase of £14.6m home improvements projects

56 Whitehill AvenueHillhead Housing Association 2000 (HHA) has completed the final phase of planned renewals to 640 homes, a project which saw £14.6 million invested during the last 12 years.

To mark the event a bouquet of flowers was presented to tenants Mr. and Mrs. Ralton of Whitehill Avenue. Mr and Mrs Ralton said they are delighted with the improvements to their home which included a new roof, new windows and re-rendering. Internally the home was modernised a few years ago.

Presenting flowers to Mrs Ralton was development agent Gail Sherriff accompanied by HHA chairperson Claire Taylor.

Holding the balloons are Stephen Macintyre, HHA director; Paul Muldoon, CCG Specialist Building Services manager and Craig Douglas, HHA clerk of works with Gerry Hughes from CCG Specialist Building Services looking on.

Paul Muldoon said: “The completion of Phase 11 is a landmark achievement for the CCG Group as it has utilised a quality window product manufactured by CCG Windows and Doors as well as the experience of the SBS Division for the installation. We have been on site for a very long time and it is a proud moment to have completed the final phase and we are glad that so many families will benefit from the enhanced energy efficiency standards brought by the Opus Timber Window.

“On behalf of CCG I would like to thank the tenants of Hillhead Housing Association for their continued patience across all phases as well as the association themselves for their unwavering support over the last seven years.”

Ms Taylor added: “It is a fabulous achievement for the Association to have finally completed a continuous housing investment programme to 640 homes that will bring many benefits to our tenants and the wider community. Together with our new build housing we can be very proud of what we have achieved since taking control of the area’s housing stock from the council.”
