Bronagh Magorrian, the Local Office Manager in Downpatrick, said she was pleased with the work being carried out by the contractor, Bann Ltd, and said: “This is a terrific boost for our tenants; I am delighted we have been able to progress this scheme.
“Over the years our homes have been regularly upgraded and maintained and in this contract the single glazed windows which have reached the end of their useful life are being replaced with uPVC double glazed units. With their replacement our tenants will benefit from greater energy efficiency, noise reduction, warmer homes, and lower heating costs in their homes.”
