We have worked with The Portman Estate since 2008/9 managing their cyclical maintenance and redecoration programme. All of the properties are either Listed or in a Conservation Area. We have carried out works to over 200 properties to date, both to communal areas and externally, obtaining Listed Building Consent where necessary. Works have included roof repairs and renewal, redecoration and improvement of communal areas, provision of fire alarm installations and emergency lighting, replacement window and doors, plaster and cornice repairs, repairs and replacement of cast iron railings, repairs and replacement of Portland stone steps and general redecoration. Where appropriate we have worked closely with Interior Designers and Structural Engineers.
Works have been carried out on a measured term contract using a schedule of rates which has significantly reduced the costs of works. Careful consideration was given to the selection of traditional materials to ensure the longevity of the buildings.
