Fast housing refurbishment is an inside job

2nd December 2022

A fast-paced multi-refurbishment project for the interiors of more than 70 housing association properties has been started by Procast.

The £435,000 programme of upgrades will improve the fabric of the homes managed by Cadder Housing Association in the north of Glasgow.

In all, 73 houses will be refurbished over a 10-week period running into the start of 2023, and the works will involve:

  • Electrical installation condition reports (EICR’s) to all properties
  • New electrical installations
  • New kitchens
  • Extractor fans
  • Vinyl floor coverings
  • Joinery finishes
  • Gutter cleaning
  • New veranda windows

All properties will be fully occupied for the duration of the contract, so the works will have to be carefully co-ordinated and carried out safely to ensure as little inconvenience as possible to tenants.

At the close of each day, all works will have to be made safe and all services will be restored.

This is an individual project secured using the Scottish Procurement Alliance whole house framework and is similar to ongoing internal refurbishment projects for Queens Cross Housing Association, also in Glasgow, and South Ayrshire Council.

This programme of works is being headed up operationally by Scott Kane and commercially by Martyna Munro, supported by buyer Jennifer Strain.

A Procast spokesman said: “We are thoroughly delighted to have been awarded this fast-paced, multi-trade refurbishment contract by Cadder Housing Association and we look forward to working alongside their construction consultants Ewing Somerville Partnership (Scotland Ltd).”
