Designs for Treadgold House

Treadgold House

An amazing 72% of residents from Treadgold House contributed to this top ten list of priorities for the upcoming refurbishment for their block. Replacing their kitchens came out on top just ahead of new bathrooms. Residents also wanted a new entry system and CCTV installed as well as re-design of the car park.   

Garden Concept Co-Design Workshops

As part of the refurbishment works taking place at Treadgold House, we hosted a series of online workshops to hear thoughts and ideas about how to improve the surrounding green spaces. LWNT invited Social Landscapes, an independent Community Interest Company that specialise in community-led garden design to facilitate these workshops.  They focused on how residents currently use the outdoor spaces and how this experience can be enhanced, whether that's in the form of a communal garden, creating an area for play, making better use of the car park, or growing plants on balconies. 

Energy measurements in your home

Treadgold House residents have chosen to go forward with the Mustbe0 carbon-neutral refurbishment of the block! We now need to carry out energy performance measurements in homes to help make sure refurbishment works are carried out properly and to make sure refurbished homes are comfortable to live in. We will be in touch with residents in February to book appointments to carry out the first of these tests. We will start by measuring the thermal performance of homes. This will help to understand how well they keep heat in. A company called Build Test Solutions will carry out the measurements for the Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team. To carry out the tests, a Build Test Solutions staff member will be visiting homes and installing sensors which will stay in place for 3 weeks.

The Treadgold House refurbishment is supported by the European Mustbe0 project, funded by the Interreg NWE Programme through the European Regional Development Fund.
