Public and social housing

Our understanding of the very specific demands and challenges of working within the public sector is second to none. We have partnered extensively with social landlords, local authorities and housing associations to work on renovating public buildings and housing modernisation projects throughout the North West.

Our wealth of experience working with public sector contracts means that we have developed unique insight and capabilities to provide our industry accredited preservation solutions on time and within budget. 

We work exceedingly hard to maintain our reputation as the best value solution to preservation problems in the public sector. This model has resulted in decades of successful working relationships with housing associations, councils and other public bodies.

Our fully qualified and accredited surveyors and highly experienced technicians are key to maintaining this reputation. Our surveyors will be able to accurately identify and diagnose any preservation problems and associated issues. Following our in-depth surveys you will be sent a detailed report and specification with any costs of any work that may be required. All work is then protected by our long term insurance backed guarantees, providing you with complete assurance and peace of mind that you can depend on our services.

Social housing and local authority surveys 

Our long and successful partnerships with social housing bodies and local authorities means that we have the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat preservation problems such as damp, condensation and mould, dry rot, wet rot, woodworm, cavity wall tie corrosion and structural repairs, across all types of housing stock and local authority buildings.

Our fully qualified CSTDB surveyors are some of the most experienced and qualified in the entire industry.

Before recommending a treatment plan, our surveyors will perform a detailed comprehensive investigation of the property to establish the scope and scale of any problems.

Upon arriving at the site, our specialist surveyor will provide a full consultancy and diagnosis service including:

  • A thorough investigation of both external and internal sides of the property
  • Application of the latest property preservation diagnosis technology to accurately identify problems
  • Identification of the underlying causes to any apparent problems
  • Diagnosis of any secondary factors contributing to or caused by the issue
  • Delivery of a full, detailed report following the survey
The report will describe the scale and scope of the preservation and restoration issues in the property, along with a proposed treatment plan to rectify them.
We are also highly experienced and extremely competitive in providing quotations based on your own inspections and schedule of works which may have been detailed and provided by your own teams.
We have been helping social housing bodies and local authorities complete their projects on time and on budget for decades. Our holistic repair and preservation service means that once any building flaws have been identified, we have a team of specialist technicians at hand to work correcting them right away, in order to minimise delays and interruptions to the project.

For any queries, or to book a survey, please contact us.

Our staff will work closely with you from survey stage, right through to the successful completion of the contract.
