Together Housing Group
2014/16 – 2 year Contract
SBS Asbestos were awarded a two year contract, through the Efficiency North Framework, for work on approximately 600 Halifax properties with established customer Together Housing Group.
The client, as part of planned improvement works, required the re-roofing – both pitched and flat roofing – of dwellings and blocks of flats, along with the safe removal of any asbestos found during the works. The dedicated team working on the project was made up of twenty roofers, twelve roofline joiners, two labourers and three apprentices; as well as a site manager, assistant site manager, a project manager and a resident liaison officer. The materials used to complete the job were Sandtoft materials for the pitched roofing, Swish for roofline and rainwater goods and Firestone EPDM for the flat roofing.
A significant challenge of the project came in the form of 14 storey town centre tower blocks with over 100 tenants, which meant the team had to work hoists and cranes around the many shops and maisonettes. The scaffold design, however, was made for public protection and businesses were able to stay open throughout the works.
SBS were praised by the client for delivering the project early and on budget and are currently working on a number of similar projects with Together Housing Group. SBS were also responsible for delivering all resident care, which achieved a 98.4% customer satisfaction rate.
