The communal areas have also benefited from the upgrade with the provision of new key-less secure door entrance systems, new windows, CCTV, replacement of all rainwater goods and removal of graffiti throughout.
The launderette has been refurbished with new energy efficient machines. Externally, landscaping works and upgrade of the children’s play area complement the refurbishment works.
Throughout the extensive refurbishment project we worked closely with the Slough Borough Councils in house Property Services team and the team from James Elliman Homes to ensure that tenants within the temporary accommodation flats had as little disruption as possible, and that new tenants could move in as quickly as possible on completion.
Cllr Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing and finance, said:
“I am delighted the refurbishment works at Pendeen Court are complete, this upgrade will make a huge difference to the individuals and families who are housed here, sometimes under difficult circumstances.
“At the council we are committed to ensuring our facilities and community buildings meet modern standards, which is why we are continuing to invest resources across the borough to make this happen.”
