Delaney Heights,

This £9 million project transformed a former student accommodation block into 119 affordable rent homes – including specially adapted apartments on the ground floor for those with disabilities.

The refurbishment plan

The apartment block now benefits from:

  • new kitchens, bathrooms and floor coverings
  • a centrally fired gas heating system – significantly reducing energy costs for residents
  • double-glazing
  • a new feature entrance and car park.

Allan Ramsay, Director of Investment and Commercial said:

“We’re thrilled to be involved in this project, which will create brand new, high-quality homes for affordable rent in a great location.”

The refurbishment works was carried out by our repairs and maintenance contractor, Guinness Properties.

A refurbishment with a difference

In September 2015, Delaney Heights was transformed into an immersive venue for theatre, storytelling and live art.

Domestic II was a one-off trip around a building in transition, with real-life stories performed in the block’s flats and inspired by social issues.

Delaney Heights was mid-renovation, which created a unique atmosphere. One minute, the audience was immersed in a café with audio installations and the next you’re in a flat contemplating space travel.
