Lion Farm Estate in Oldbury:
In 2018 we were appointed to carry out the internal and external refurbishment of three, 13 storey blocks of flats and associated landscaping works at the Lion Farm Estate in Oldbury. The works were being done to improve the energy efficiency, lifespan, appearance of the buildings, the comfort of the residents and the appearance of the area.
By employing local labour and SMEs wherever possible, expenditure on the refurbishment project has been reinvested in the local economy, giving it a substantial boost. Using the LM3 tool, we have calculated that for every £1 from the gross project income, an additional £2.31 has been returned to the area.
During all of the Sandwell projects we engaged with community organisations, schools, employment agencies, Council departments and other stakeholders to ensure we understood their requirements and how we could leave a Lovell Legacy of added value community improvements.
