The project included cleaning and repainting the outside of the buildings, interior redecoration of shared spaces within the schemes and modern new kitchens in all apartments.
A brand new hairdressing salon has also been installed with washing and styling units in Abercorn Court.
The final piece of the puzzle was the refurbishment of the tenants lounge areas creating a bright, modern and comfortable space where tenants can socialise together.
