The roof works consisted of a further ‘overlay’ applied to the existing layer. The additional layer allowed recommended depth of insulation required under the current ECO standard to be met.

Telephone Services

SCCI Alphatract, working on behalf of BT have completed the rewire of all the existing telephone lines on the estate.

IRS TV Aerial system

Communal dishes were sited on a side elevation of some blocks which serves 5 blocks. The cabling was fitted vertically and applied within concealed ducting under the cladding.

Each dwelling now has internal reception box sited in the living room and was offered reception to the main bedroom. Properties that had more than 2 reception points were given a like for like service.

The internal reception box will allows normal digital & Freeview channels, as well as Hotbird satellite reception for foreign channels. Residents paying for Sky and other services will need to plug into the unit to maintain reception.

No further external installations of aerials / dishes will be allowed.
