Carroll Build have completed the transformation of sheltered housing scheme Chung Hok House.
The retirement accommodation in Liverpool City Centre which is run by social landlord Pine Court Housing Association, has undergone a complete refurbishment following the upgrade of the windows and doors in 2016.

All communal areas have been redecorated to the high standard that Carroll Build is known for, including the three lounges and hairdressing salon.
The refurbishment has been designed to follow dementia-friendly standards, with adaptations and considerations to benefit a resident suffering from dementia or other forms of memory loss.
The furnishings and décor throughout the building have been chosen specifically to create a familiar environment, which can help someone with dementia find their way around.
Bright colours have been used around the building to help residents differentiate between the floor levels, hallways and rooms. The guest room has been refurbished, with a specially adapted bathroom for disabled users.
The final element of the works will be the refurbishment of the reception area and the installation of an external ramp.
Senior Housing Officer for Pine Court Housing Association, Shaun Williams said: “The whole place looks so much brighter and will hopefully have a really positive effect on the lives of our residents. We’ve had really good feedback from residents and we’re delighted with how everything has gone with the works.”
Managing Director of The Carroll Group, Terry Carroll said “Carroll Build took the time and effort to gain specialist knowledge from Pine Court so we could learn their working methods and incorporate their goals and vision effectively. We are proud of the work delivered on this project and believe that we have built an excellent working relationship with Pine Court and look forward to working on our next project for them.”
