Darley House, Oldbury

The refurbishment of the Darley House estate will see four low rise blocks and the high-rise block receive a much-needed modernisation both aesthetically and thermally.  The building will see the following treatments:

  • Over cladding of the blocks with mineral wool insulation and rainscreen cladding to improve the thermal efficiency.
  • Replacement of single glazed windows with double glazed tilt and turn aluminium/timber composite windows.
  • New balcony doors and balcony upgrade.
  • Demolition of redundant storage sheds
  • Extensive fire stopping measures including new smoke alarms and heat detectors.
  • Installation of fire-resistant doors and screens to all floor levels.
  • New insulated pitched roofs to cover the existing flat roofs.
  • New front entrance lobbies with secure key fob door entry systems.
  • Additional external CCTV cameras throughout together with cameras located within the internal entrance lobby areas.
  • Upgrade of street lighting.
  • Landscape works including additional car parking spaces.
  • A new district heating system that will serve all the blocks.

The construction work is set to complete late 2024
