Kennedy Court is a sheltered accommodation consisting of 33 flats contained within four large accommodation units.
Brenig Construction were awarded the £200,000 contract to carry out external refurbishment works to the properties.
The works to be carried out included a full re-rendering of the external envelope, new glass and stainless steel balconies and a Sika Decothane waterproof flooring system to the 24 first and second floor flat balconies. In addition to the above, we tidied up the external plumbing pipework and painted the external gas main pipework.
The work was carried out for our client, Cartrefi Conwy, and Brenig Construction’s Tenant Liaison Officer worked very closely with the Neighbourhood Services Coordinator and various visiting Home Nursing staff to ensure that our works did not impact on the vulnerable residents. The extra care and attention we gave to the residents was reflected in the very high Customer Satisfaction KPIs, which returned an average score of 95%.
Brenig Construction were awarded a £270,000 contract at Peel Street Abergele.
The scheme required us to install an External Wall Insulated Render System, together with full window replacement, new kitchen and bathroom fans, and a new communal TV aerial system.
Brenig were given a performance brief for the EWI, and we partnered up with Weber, a specialist EWI provider to assist us with the specification. We provided the wind load calculations and the pull out test reports for the Building Control application, and we were also responsible for obtaining planning permission for the scheme.
Due to the nature of the works being carried out, it could have been necessary to enter the 18 flats on multiple occasions. However, our Tenant Liaison Officer, working closely with our Site Manager, was able to arrange 1 single access to every flat in order to install the windows, fit the new fans and install the internal TV wiring. Thus we were able to carry out all of our installations in just one visit.
Historically these flats were cold and damp, and once we have finished the works, they will be thermally efficient and help bring many residents out of fuel poverty
We are proud to be a part of this scheme.
