Asbestos Refurbishment Surveys

The LK Group was appointed by The Casey Group to undertake asbestos refurbishment surveys on 100 properties in Hattersley allotted for boiler replacement works and kitchen and bathroom upgrades. The Hattersley Estate was built in the early 1960s to house residents from areas in Manchester undergoing large scale clearance programmes.

Outcome

THE SOLUTION

A swift period of gearing up was imperative. Our client’s tight schedule meant that we were given only a few days’ notice before work began on site. Within seven days of a quotation request we had mobilised our surveyors, completed the first tranche of surveys and reported our findings. Since the properties remained occupied during the project, it was paramount that we established and maintained strong lines of communication and positive working relations with the residents and others affected by our works.

THE BENEFIT

Our swift mobilisation ensured that the schedule of refurbishment works remained on target and costly downtime was avoided. We achieved a high level of satisfaction with all stakeholders through our effective communication and problem resolution during the project.
