Homestead Court in Barnet is a sheltered housing development run by the Home Group, one of the UK’s largest providers of housing and supported housing services. It consists of 36 one bedroom flats built in 1989. The development includes a communal garden and lounge where a range of activities are held for or organised by residents. There is also a communal kitchen for residents who wish to have a party on site. Staff are on site Monday to Friday during the day and every resident is linked in to a community alarm service.
One of the on-site facilities for residents is a laundry, and during 2015 the laundry needed re-equipping. The level of use clearly requires commercial specification equipment, so Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems supplied and installed a Schulthess 7kg capacity free standing high spin washer and an Amazon tumble dryer. Residents use the machines themselves as and when they want to at no additional cost.
Abu Latif, housing co-ordinator and manager of the unit, told us, “We are very pleased with the new machines – the residents find them easy to use and the wash quality is very good.”
For further information on our commercial washing machines or other laundry equipment, contact us and see how we can advise you to best suit your business.
