Worsnop House refurbishment complete


The two year refurbishment of Worsnop House, on Old Heath Road, is now complete.

The £3.8m refurbishment of Worsnop House took 9 months to plan and is the first of four sheltered housing schemes to be refurbished by CBH under Colchester Borough Council's Sheltered Housing Review.

The refurbishment of Worsnop House was managed and delivered by Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) on behalf of Colchester Borough Council.

Greg Falvey, Chief Executive of Colchester Borough Homes said "We have been very pleased to have provided a project management and contractor service.  The residents of Worsnop House have been real stars and we wish them every happiness in their refurbished homes."

The refurbishment has seen the conversion of the existing accommodation into 31 self-contained flats with fitted kitchens and bathrooms. Additionally a wealth of energy efficient measures have been installed including a roof mounted photovoltaic electrical generation system, a solar hot water heating system and triple glazed windows and doors.
