Investment work to improve more than 80 homes for Thirteen’s customers on a Middlesbrough estate is complete.


9 Jul 2019

The work on the Phoenix Park estate in Hemlington has been carried out by Thirteen’s internal investment team in partnership with Wensley Roofing and J MAC Scaffolding.

It has included fitting new double-glazed windows, doors, fencing and roofing improvements to 84 flats.

Site agent Sam White, who has managed the project said: “The new windows, doors and roofing improvements will ensure the homes are more insulated and will help to make them feel quieter and warmer, while the new fencing has added extra security.”

This year Thirteen is carrying out £34.1m of internal and external improvements on homes across the Tees Valley. This includes replacing over 215 kitchens and around 80 bathrooms. Almost 1,640 properties will receive new windows and 680 properties will receive new external doors.

The work will help reduce our customer’s fuel bills, with around 1,760 new boilers being installed over the year, making homes more energy efficient and cost effective.

Over the next five years Thirteen has plans to invest over £1billion into improving homes for existing customers, building new homes, making improvements to neighbourhoods and into the support services offered to customers.
