‘Project Admiral’ community event held for residents in Poole

United Living Property Services (ULPS), in conjunction with Poole Housing Partnership (PHP), recently held a community event for residents in Poole, Dorset.

Members of the ULPS team were on hand to answer any resident queries regarding the ‘Project Admiral’ fire safety improvement works taking place in four tower blocks in Poole.

On behalf of Poole Housing Partnership, United Living Property Services is delivering internal and external upgrade works to Drake Court, Grenville Court, Nelson Court and Rodney Court in the old town.

PHP had staff on hand to advise on money matters, the works, and other resident queries. Poole Adult Community Education was also in attendance, running a session on making festive floral decorations.

ULPS provided individually wrapped biscuits, cakes, chocolates etc., and helped the youngsters create balloon animals. Jacqui Noon, Social Value Manager, was also on hand making teas, coffees and squash, and everyone received a chocolate box of their choice. Those who didn’t manage to attend will get a chocolate tub to thank them for their patience whilst the work has been ongoing.

Gifts have also been bought for the children living in the two tower blocks, ranging from books, gel pens, playing card games, and vouchers (age dependant).

Jacqui Noon said: “United Living is committed to building strong community relationships, and it was a pleasure working with our partners Poole Housing Partnership to deliver the community event”.

United Living Property Services recently commenced fire safety improvement works on the external façade of two tower blocks known as Sterte Court in Poole. The £3.8 million work programme on behalf of Poole Housing Partnership will remove the old cladding system outside the two accommodation blocks and have new A-rated fire-resistant cladding panels installed.

The buildings’ existing cladding system, replaced and completed in 2015, needs to be removed because the materials no longer meet the government’s current building regulations.
