Carradale House
Refurbishment works were undertaken at Carradale House, an iconic brutalist Grade II listed tower designed by Erno Goldfinger. As part of the stock transfer Offer from Tower Hamlets Council, Poplar HARCA promised to renovate the building internally and externally. Kitchens and bathrooms were brought up to Decent Home Standard and improvements were made to the roof, boiler, insulation, cladding and external decoration.

“We’ve had massive regeneration. […] Residents are constantly saying how nice it is now, and a nicer place to live.”
