Located in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham the three flats had been empty for a number of years and had considerable fire damage. Each property required complete gutting, repair and refurbishment. Work included building a brand new roof, moving internal walls, putting in steels, installing new kitchens, bathrooms, windows, doors, electrics and plumbing (including new gas central heating). Once the building work was completed, the properties were decorated to a high standard, carpeted throughout and new curtains and blinds put up. Decking was constructed in the two gardens, and all ground surfaces were made safe. The external walls front and back were repaired and redecorated.
Now complete, Genesis Housing Association, working with the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council will be housing three families in desperate need.
