PTE was appointed by the Liverpool Housing Action Trust (LHAT) in 1999 as consultants for the popular Sefton Park Estate.
The brief was for the complete refurbishment of the blocks including: structural repairs, re-roofing, new windows, improvements to the common parts, entrances and landscaping, new services throughout and improvements to the flat layouts.
PTE has designed new wheelchair flats and common rooms at the base of the blocks and spectacular new penthouses on top. The flats enjoy wonderful views over Sefton Park and the city centre.
There were a total of five flat block refurbishments and extensions, giving 274 affordable apartments.
