A resident of one of the properties being worked on by Whittle on behalf of client Mears Plc had been suffering with damp issues within her property so Whittle had the opportunity to tender for this work to rectify the damp issues within her house.
It was a tendered package and the specification was to take down external skin of brickwork from all 3 elevations of the semi-detached property to facilitate the removal of the existing expanded foam cavity insulation, installation of new insulation/batts/wall ties and rebuilding the external envelope which included for new DPC cavity trays, replacement lintels and windows where required and the removal of old soffit fascia and installation of new UPVC soffit fascia.
The project was managed by Whittle Building Foreman, Mick Knight.
It was a good project to be involved in and was completely outside of the usual scope of works Whittle normally carry out. It turned out to be a substantial feather in the Whittle cap.
Given the invasiveness of the project the Health and Safety was stringent and project timeframes were tight.
The project was completed to a high standard of workmanship, within budget and ahead of schedule. The end result was that the resident was extremely happy with the finished project and over the moon not to be suffering with damp issues any longer.
The award scheme is run by Brighton & Hove Council and recognises outstanding work that has had a really positive impact. The project has been nominated to receive an award by Theresa Youngman, Contract Compliance Manager for Brighton and Hove City Council.
