Section I: Contracting authority
Main address: http://www.choice-housing.org/
Section II: Object
PF16-019 Multi-Element Improvement (MEI) Works to Dillon Court and Riverview House, Strabane.
Dillon Court: The vast majority (26nr) of the scheme's apartments are one-bedroom units, with the remainder comprising three-person two-bedroom units. Although Dillon Court is a scheme that offers 24/7 support to its residents, the care is delivered ‘in-house’ by Choice's officers and, as such, there is no joint-managed involvement required. Dillon Court is fairly unique, in many respects, in that it effectively brings three different levels of support (clients with mental health issues, vulnerable adults, as well as homeless support) under the banner of a single scheme.
Riverview House: is located within walking distance of Strabane's busy town centre and comprises an infill, purpose-built development of 13nr modern, self-contained, one-bedroom apartments, which is served by two separate communal lobbies and stairwells. Riverview House is located at the southern end of Main Street within the town and was developed during the early-2000s by Ulidia Housing.
The package of proposed multi-element improvements proposed will comprise of:
— Kitchen replacement works (inc. M&E),
— Conversion from existing ‘Economy 7’ electric heating to mains-fired gas (in conjunction with the on-going ‘Gas to the West’ project to Strabane town by SGN Natural Gas),
— External cyclical redecoration works,
— Glazing replacement works throughout,
— The removal and replacement of external doorsets,
— The provision of a new door-entry/intercom system (where required) to serve a number of the upper-storey apartments,
— Rainwater goods clearance & essential repairs,
— Refurbishment works to the internal communal areas serving each accommodation block.
The works comprise of:
— Restoration of the scheme's external facades, including render cleaning, cyclical redecoration works to include pre-paint remedial works,
— Clearance and flushing clear of rainwater goods.
