Tate & Morgan was awarded a contract to complete structural repairs on a residential property in Southend on Sea in Essex. The local council awarded the contract for the building works.

Residential building works with minimal disruption to the customer

It can be unpleasant having builders all over your house and it’s important to create both a safe working environment and to ensure that occupants are not inconvenienced during the building works.

We don’t want to inconvenience our client when conducting building work

During the building works, we consulted with the occupant so that we could minimise disruption to them. We provided all dust sheeting and other protection inside the property to prevent mess and damage to any areas of the house that we weren’t working in and to the tenant’s belongings.

Health and Safety plan

We also supplied a full health and safety plan five days prior to the commencement of the building works.

Structural repairs to external walls

Our remit was to repair structural damage to external cracks in the walls and we used a HeliFix repair system to do this. We also installed HeliBars for the external crack structural repairs. After the cracks were repaired, we replaced doors and windows and plastered the interior walls, before installing a vinyl floor in the kitchen area.

Further internal repairs were needed to the building interior

As a result of the external structural issues, we had to renovate some indoor areas, including making repairs to the downstairs walls and decoration of the hall, downstairs WC, kitchen and living room and then decoration of the landing, upstairs bathroom and bedrooms, including wallpapering. We also tiled the kitchen and bathrooms and fully tested the existing boiler and provided a gas safety certificate for the boiler.

Final health and safety file

When we had finished the work, we provided a health and safety file to the client.
