Housing renewals continue to bring benefits to Linthouse tenants
Latest phase of renewals includes replacement of kitchens and bathrooms, plus the addition of ancillary decoration, plumbing and electrical works.
The CCG Group has been live with the Govan-based Linthouse Housing Association since early 2018, and now, the organisations are to embark on a third phase of planned renewal works which will take the number properties that have received upgrades to approximately 450. Like the last two phases, this phase of works has been procured via one of the SPA Frameworks. The total cost of these contracts has been met by the association.
Undertaken by the company’s planned maintenance division, CCG Asset Management, the latest phase of renewals includes the replacement of kitchens and bathrooms, plus the addition of ancillary decoration, plumbing and electrical works, including the installation of LD2 works to approximately 100 properties which will all be undertaken within a three-month period.
It is the third phase of planned maintenance to have been delivered by CCG Asset Management for the association. Earlier in the year, the company’s Asset Management’s sister division, Specialist Building Services, completed a major CTI project at Hutton Drive that was launched by Humza Yousaf MSP. These works involved internal reconfiguration and external repairs as well as internal improvements to 33 properties. This project was funded jointly by the association and grant funding from Glasgow City Council’s DRS.
Stephen Riley, CCG Asset Management Manager, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Linthouse Housing Association with this latest phase of planned maintenance.
“Linthouse is continuing to invest in their properties, and, by working with CCG, they are assured of a high-quality finish, delivered on time and on budget.
“Some of the feedback from our previous phases has been great to hear, and I am sure our team will continue their good work for this programme.”
Gail Sherriff, Linthouse’s Depute CEO, said: “The association’s new Asset Management team, that only began to form last year, is delighted that this third phase of component replacement works with CCG is now on site and improving the standard of our tenants’ homes is uppermost in the minds of all members of the team.
“We have been reviewing tenants’ satisfaction within previous phases so that we can continue to work in partnership with CCG to ensure we are delivering the best, quality improvements that we all can.”
