Wide Scope Of Refurbishment Works



Project Information

Sanctuary Housing manages a number of private and social housing dwellings across the country. This collection of properties, located in Stafford, were in need of extensive refurbishment works. Mars were selected by the Client and Faithful and Gould for their professional approach and submission to the open tender process for the scheme. Working with the Client and their advisors, Mars were able to develop a scheme more suited to the site constraints presented by this particular project.

For the main part of the works, attention was to be paid to the existing communal asphalt walkways servicing the flats. These were in a bad state of repair, with cracks, slumping and complete failures to various areas. In turn, these defects were contributing to a number of secondary issues; concrete degradation; plaster finishes blowing; decoration works bubbling, flaking and debonding; corrosion of reinforcement and electrical conduit and of course water ingress into properties. The handrails were also in a bad state with previous installers making poor alterations and attempts at remedying a failing install. Numerous fixings into the upstands had completely failed with extensive damage being caused to the exposed concrete structure.

Mars were appointed as Principal Contractor and delivered a wide scope of works to address all of the issues above. In the first instance, a number of open nights were held with the residents invited to attend so that the extent of the works, and the effects on the residents, could be communicated, discussed and developed. Attended by the full Mars delivery team, this was an important and valuable process that ultimately helped the project run as smoothly as possible and with minimum disruption to the flat occupants.

Installed over the winter period Mars were able to deliver this project on time, on budget and to the highest of industry standards. The end result delivering a long lasting durable solution to all the previous issues covered by a fully insurance backed warranty for the works. Ultimately, both the Client and tennant were left extremely satisfied with the new look communal areas.
