Success for Barrachnie Redevelopment

Euphemia Brisbane BarrachnieTenants in Barrachnie are settling back into their homes after a large-scale redevelopment. Feedback from tenants has been very positive and they are feeling the benefits of the redevelopment. One tenant John Sneddon has lived in his home for 42 years  and it was the family home of his wife and her family since the 1940s. John said, “At first I was reluctant to get the work done as I didn’t want the hassle however I am happy I changed my mind. Everyone involved has been helpful and friendly and if I have had needed something fixed it has been  done straight away. Before the redevelopment the house could get quite could but since I have moved back in it is much warmer.”

The positive feedback was echoed by Euphemia Brisbane who has stayed in Barrachnie for 13 years. She commented, “I was a wee bit worried about getting the work done but I am glad I did as it has really improved my home life. The process was straightforward and when I was decanted the company even made sure to put my furniture in the same place I had it! Everyone has been so helpful and the work is great, my house feels a bit bigger.”

WSHA began on the £.1.2 million project in August 2018 with completion due in June 2019. The project has been undertaken by contractors including GDN and has included electrical re-wire, new kitchens and bathrooms and external paintwork.
