Improvements to your home

Orbit is committed to providing comfortable and well-maintained homes for our customers. We invest in them regularly so that they remain efficient and up-to-date. Work to make these improvements is managed by Capital Delivery.

Works which are not repairs to an existing part of your home, but which are an improvement or upgrade, we refer to as ‘investment works’. They are generally carried out as a project which will be undertaken to improve a scheme, a street or a whole community.

Adding value

Sometimes, when carrying out improvements at a scheme, we are able to contribute to a community upgrade initiative whilst we're there.  The communal garden rejuvenation at Mentmore House in Ramsgate was one such project.
