SBS is one of four contractors recently appointed to a new multi-measure scheme in the Midlands. The work was procured through the Merlin Framework on behalf of Bromford Housing Association.
SBS was appointed to the Merlin framework a number of years ago, but it won its place on this latest contract as a result of a mini tender. Its bid was assessed on the basis of price and quality. The quality elements of the submission were judged by criteria including experience, knowledge and understanding; resources and management structure; and added social value and innovation.
The scheme will involve works on 154 properties in various locations including Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Iron Action, Old Sodbury, Wickwar, Coalpit Heath and Acton Turville.
The works themselves will include the installation of an external wall insulation system, together with roof repairs and replacements, including the replacement of soffits and fascias and chimney re-pointing. Other works will include repairs to pathways and boundary fencing; repairs and decorations to outhouses; and the removal of any asbestos materials encountered on the various sites.
Works are now in progress and will be complete by December 2019.
