Work be­gins to re­vamp Soroba ten­e­ment

The Oban Times - - News -

WORK to re­vamp the ten­e­ment at 52 Soroba Road, Oban, re­sumed this week fol­low­ing a break over the Christ­mas and New Year hol­i­day pe­riod.

The 10-week con­tract, co­or­di­nated by Ar­gyll Com­mu­nity Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion to a value of £133,000, has been awarded to Turner Fa­cil­i­ties Man­age­ment Lim­ited.

The works will in­clude putting a new roof on the build­ing, re-ren­der­ing, wall in­su­la­tion, ex­ter­nal paint­ing and new fas­cias, sof­fits, down­pipes and gut­ter­ing.

Alas­tair MacGre­gor, ACHA’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, said: ‘I am de­lighted that with the sup­port of Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil, prop­erty own­ers and our ten­ants, we have got on site to save this build­ing to pro­vide homes for the fu­ture.

‘ I hope it will, on com­ple­tion, be as suc­cess­ful as the neigh­bour­ing ten­e­ment restora­tion across the road, which the or­gan­i­sa­tion com­pleted three years ago.

‘ The restora­tion of this build­ing will see the com­ple­tion of im­prove­ments to the third and fi­nal ten­e­ment at the heart of Soroba Road.’

Work has started to re­store the ten­e­ment at 52 Soroba Road.
