A new look for Ardnaskea Court Posted on 11 June 2024

People living at Ardnaskea Court independent living scheme in Coalisland enjoyed a celebratory afternoon tea party to mark the completion of a £225,000 upgrade by Clanmil Housing.   

The investment includes window replacements in all apartments and communal areas as well as redecoration throughout, new flooring, new lighting and a new suspended ceiling. The refurbishment also included new furniture, blinds, curtains and furnishings in communal areas at the scheme.

The scheme’s guest room and quiet room also had a makeover and is now modern and welcoming.  

The tenants’ lounge is the social hub at Ardnaskea Court and  it is now even more inviting for residents and visitors to spend time in.

Anne Marie McCluskey, who has lived at Ardnaskea Court for eight years, is delighted with the transformation. She said: “It’s really beautiful. Clanmil has made our common room more inviting. It’s nice and homely.”

 Clanmil’s Director of Assets and Building Safety, Tony Giffen, said:
“At Clanmil, we have a wider investment programme of £6,000,000 that we are delivering during 2024/25 to keep our customers’ homes, safe, comfortable and energy efficient places to live.It’s very important to us when we’re doing refurbishment work like this, that residents are involved at the planning stage so that it’s them who choose the colours and finishes. The feedback we’ve had from Ardnaskea residents is very positive and we’re delighted they‘re enjoying life in their newly refurbished home.”
