SOUTH SIDE HOUSING ASSOCIATION

Sector: Affordable Housing
Client: Southside Housing Association
Description: Door Renewal Package, Multi-storey Flats, Hillington, Glasgow

The works consisted of the complete replacement of over 1,000 pass doors, including all ironmongery, in two blocks of flats containing a total of 240 residences. This required very detailed planning and close co- operation with the residents to manage access times. BP Contracts also arranged a residents briefing meeting which was held in the local community hall to fully explain how the project would operate and samples of the ironmongery were displayed. In addition, residents received letters in advance advising of inspection dates prior to work commencing, followed by proposed dates for the work to be carried out, with flexibility regarding changes built in. Special needs were catered for by co-operation with carers and Housing Association staff.

The residences were carefully protected during the works, including carpet protection measures and they were cleaned each day before leaving site.

Doors to common areas were also renewed and all remedial works such as plaster repairs, and re-decoration were carried out with minimum disruption to residents.
