Frank Rogers has completed the conversion of a former refuse area into a storage room for mobility scooters by social housing provider, Sanctuary Housing.
Work has been carried out at the older persons living development just outside Chester, comprising three tower block, St Anne’s, St Oswald and St Georges.
Delivered across an eight-week period, the conversion required a full range of property services including joinery and electrical works. Mike Travis, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers explained: “The building in its previous state was fairly basic with no utilities. As part of the conversion, we’ve had to introduce an electrical system adding multiple power points that enable the tenants to charge their mobility scooters.”
Work was being carried out during day time with much liaison between tenants. Mike added:
“We worked closely with both the Sanctuary Housing Tenant Liaison Officer and the tenants themselves to ensure minimal disruption. The tenants have been incredibly supportive and we’re on track for completion in line with the allocated timeframes.”
This is the first contract completed by Frank Rogers for Sanctuary Housing and the firm is currently discussing other works with the housing association.
“We’ve had great feedback from Sanctuary to date. They’re particularly keen on our approach in using our own tradesmen direct which reflects in terms of both quality and delivery of survive. We look forward to making further announcements regarding our partnership with them in the near future.”
