Frank Rogers is set to complete a series of kitchen replacements at a row of bungalows in Anfield as part of Your Housing Group’s far reaching regeneration programme for the area.
Founder of the contracting business, Frank Rogers, built the bungalows over 20 years earlier with his team, and now some two decades later the same firm will carry out replacement works at the properties. Frank’s son Dean now leads the company and discovered the chance finding during a visit to site.
Dean Rogers, Managing Director of Frank Rogers said:
“I knew that the road seemed really familiar during a visit with some members of the Your Housing Group’s team and quick realised that my dad had built the homes on Oakfield Road originally. The properties were so well kept and maintained and there was a definite sense of pride in the road.”
“The kitchens have obviously lasted well during this time as we will be managing the first replacement programme! As a business and for me personally, it’s wonderful to be involved in the regeneration of Anfield and to know that we will play a role in the continued improvement of these properties and the wider area, continuing my dad’s strong legacy.”
Tenant, Joyce Peterson, moved into the road some 13 years ago. She said:
“I watched the bungalows being built as I used to live opposite and wanted to live there even then!
“I’ve recently had my kitchen replaced and had a great experience with the Frank Rogers workmen and the resident liaison team who were brilliant, really polite, spotless and cleaned up every night
“I didn’t realise the same company built the bungalows that did the work to the kitchen but I am really happy about that – I think local people should be doing local work.”
Anfield-based Frank Rogers, was recently awarded a £1.5million contract from Your Housing Group as part of Anfield’s wide scale regeneration programme. Frank Rogers secured the contract through Fusion21, the procurement consortium which Your Housing Group is a member of. As part of the contract, works include kitchen and bathroom replacements alongside general improvement works, all of which will to be completed over a two year period, forming part of the initial stages of the ambitious project, which is set to transform the inner city area.
Dave Litherland, Head of Anfield for Your Housing Group added:
“This is a fantastic story and something really important to Your Housing Group. Our regeneration work in Anfield is all about preserving the area for future generations and the people who live in our homes and the surrounding areas are really key to this. To be able to work with a company who has that heritage with the area is vitally important.”
