£800,000 investment project to transform homes on Thornaby estate

An investment project is set to transform homes for residents living on a Thornaby estate.

Esh Living is working in partnership with Thirteen’s design and delivery team on the £800,000 project, which has commenced on the Park Estate.

Refurbishment works, which are expected to be complete by November, will see over 40 customers receive roofing improvements, new windows and doors, canopies and cladding.

Project co-ordinator, Rubie Lee at Thirteen Group said: “We’re pleased to be working in partnership with Esh Living and we’re looking forward to working on the estate and seeing how the improvements progress over the coming months.

“The work will bring so many benefits to our customers, it will not only enhance and modernise the appearance of the estate, it will ensure the homes are wind and watertight and make them feel much warmer too. We’ll be working closely with our customers throughout the project and we’ll be on hand to talk to them and answer any questions they might have.”

This year Thirteen is carrying out £34.1m of internal and external improvements on homes across the Tees Valley. This includes replacing over 215 kitchens and around 80 bathrooms. Almost 1,640 properties will receive new windows and 680 properties will receive new external doors.

The work will help reduce our customer’s fuel bills, with around 1,760 new boilers being installed over the year, making homes more energy efficient and cost effective.

We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver another great refurbishment project on behalf of Thirteen Group which is a fantastic investment for the local area."
