Frank Rogers has completed another phase of housing regeneration with seven derelict homes completely transformed.
The properties at Rockfield Road, Sybil Road and Alroy Road had fallen into a severe state of disrepair, each requiring extensive stabilisation and structural works followed by a full refurbishment and modernisation programme.
Work comprised kitchen and bathroom replacements, plumbing, heating and electrical works alongside general internal and external improvement works.
New tenants have now moved into each of the properties and have quickly settled into their new homes.
Dean Rogers Managing Director of Frank Rogers, said:
“This area lies close to all of our hearts and our business HQ has been in Anfield since we launched 40 years ago. Several of our skilled trades team members live in the area and so for them to be part of a project that is beginning to make a difference is brilliant.”
Mark Tattersall, chair of Your Housing Group, said:
“One of the wonderful aspects of the regeneration of Anfield is that the area is being worked on by the very people who have the strongest attachment to it and this approach has several consequences.
“There is pride and love in the rebuilding work that is being done. People who have grown up in Anfield, are preserving it for future generations and at the same time helping to restore its economic prosperity today, and for years to come.
“The work that Frank Rogers are doing is therefore a vital component of what the Anfield Regeneration Partnership is trying to achieve, regenerate the fabric of the area and its spirit and confidence.”
Meanwhile three adjoining houses on Rockfield Road that were considered beyond salvation have been demolished and new houses are being built in their place.
Frank Rogers is managing the new build contract awarded by Your Housing Group (YHG) with the three storey properties to be completed by June 2017.
Mike Travis, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers, said:
“Your Housing Group has tried, where possible, to refurbish properties in the area, however, it became apparent that these properties were in need of demolition and to be replaced by new build homes.”
Groundworks is underway which will be followed by brickwork and all other professional trades up to roof level.
Sarah Kemp, head of Anfield at YHG, said:
“The work that Frank Rogers is carrying out is really important to us because it is helping to repair and rebuild the community and preserving the sense of pride that is so strong in Anfield.”
