PALMA City Council will renovate the roofs of three social housing buildings in the capital with an investment of €1.3 million from its Municipal Board of Housing budget.
The objective of the project is to improve the safety of the three properties which were built in the 1950s and have only been partially reformed since then. One is referred to as ‘El Tirador’ and is located on Calle Miquel dels Sants Oliver and the two other buildings are situated on Calle de Aragón.
Josep Maria Rigo, Manager of the Municipal Board of Housing, has revealed that the work will be carried out at the end of next year and will also include the installation of insulation in the buildings.
In a statement about the plans, Rigo explained that the fact that the buildings are inhabited will make the renovations somewhat difficult, so the work will be undertaken in two phases to accommodate families that have to be relocated.
The Tirador building houses 45 social housing apartments and the two properties on Calle de Aragón has a total of 28.
The total investment for the project could reach over €1.3 million since Palma City Council also intends to replace the floors of the buildings.
