Mila Maintenance and Installation was contracted to carry out the upgrade works following a competitive tender. The bid included the supply and installation of new Sentry fire doors to flats and to the communal areas on each floor within the blocks.
The programme began with Princess House, followed by Sutton House and then Crosby House to complete the project.
Installation Operations Manager Dean Bradford who was responsible for the site explained, “as a company we are now very experienced in the installation of these critical safety measures, designed to keep people safe and secure in their homes. A key part of our offering is that we ensure our site teams are all fully trained, and that they are managed by BM Trada accredited supervisors to carry out the works”.
“It is one of the things that marks us out as a specialist contractor, and one of the reasons why clients can have real confidence in our ability to do the job to the very highest standards. We have worked with Ongo Homes on a number of projects previously and we were especially delighted to secure this programme of works through competitive tender, and to get the site up and running as quickly as possible after the award”.
“As soon as the site set up was completed we were ready to go, and the start point was our Resident Liaison Office Alison beginning consultation and communication with the residents”.
