Over the last 52 weeks we’ve undertaken a variety of work across Stoke-on-Trent as part of our ongoing planned work. As part of our commitment to Stoke-on-Trent City Council and the 17,500 domestic and 6,500 commercial properties we care for on their behalf, we have a running Planned Work programme. The aim of this programme is to effectively, and in order, attend to the ongoing maintenance for each property in a way which gives the City Council maximum value for money and their customers the best possible conditions to live, work and frequent.
Key estate projects have included:
Meir Square – section 1
- Re-roofing, including fascias, soffits and guttering,
- Renewing entrance and store doors
- Installing new lighting
- Installing smoke/heat detection monitors
- Adding loft installation
Meir Square – Section 2
- External Wall Insulation
- Roof repairs
- Rain Water Goods
- Ventilation Works.
Upgrades and Improvements to 72 properties on and around Community Drive, with work including:
- Installing smoke detectors
- External lighting
Work to bungalows where, as needed, including:
- Entrance door replacement
On the more commercial front, we worked with our colleagues in Bereavement Services at the City Council to ensure that while vital works were being carried out to the chimney, the apertures in the roof and the cloister works, the day to day work of the Crematorium at Carmountside could continue peacefully and so as not to disturb those attending services. We’re delighted to say that our team worked with the Bereavement Team to ensure this could happen.
