NLHC housing units getting facelift

     Modernization and improvements are underway on 10 Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC) homes on Topsail Road in Mount Pearl.
     G.S. Hunt Enterprises Ltd. has been awarded a $417,000 contract to undertake interior and exterior renovations on the social housing properties.
     The 10 units are contained in one building which will receive new roofing, siding, windows, doors, ventilation and electrical upgrades, along with the installation of heat recovery ventilation systems (HRVs) and exhaust fans. The property will also receive various site improvements. The anticipated completion date is April 2016. 
     “I am pleased to see this contract awarded and the work started. The significant upgrades being undertaken on these 10 social housing homes is just one indication of how our government, through Newfoundland and Labrador Housing, is helping people with low incomes to live in comfortable home environments,” said Mount Pearl North MHA Steve Kent.
