Housing association Notting Hill Genesis has selected Equans to carry out a £72m ($91.40m) refurbishment and investment plan at its Paragon estate in Brentford, West London, UK.
This agreement and requisite planning approval from the London Borough of Hounslow will see the company begin restoring properties for use between 2025 and 2026, as well as rebuild a local community at the estate.
Notting Hill Genesis’ development and sales group director and deputy CEO John Hughes said: “The subsequent thorough investigations give us a great deal of confidence that we have a robust plan, and we are looking forward to working with Equans and our expert team of surveyors to deliver our remediation and reinvestment plan.”
Aside from completing these repairs, some of the restoration works include fitting considerably thicker insulation and a new facade to significantly increase the residencies’ comfort levels.
Of the £72m investment, £36m will be spent on modernising the buildings’ services and finishes such as updated sprinkler and public health systems, and renovated houses.
Equans’ regional managing director Dan Germann said: “Following months of significant intrusive investigations and comprehensive planning and testing, we are delighted to have been appointed to undertake the remedial and reinvestment works at the Paragon estate development.
