Social housing provider, Sanctuary Housing, has appointed Frank Rogers to carry out a £700,000 contract at Newton House, delivering a range of fire risk and maintenance works.

The scheme in Chester will benefit from a full scope of fire risk works, including the introduction of new internal and external fire doors throughout.

Frank Rogers  continues to strengthen and expand its fire risk division,  carrying out a comprehensive range of services for organisations and businesses keen to operate a safe and compliant residential or commercial facility.

Newton House includes 39 independent living units, each single storey with ancillary communal areas. Other works completed include general improvement and decorative works including upgrades to the scooter room and conservatory.

A part of the programme, Frank Rogers has introduced a tenant liaison officer who will meet  regularly with client representatives and residents. Residents will remain in their homes whilst work is taking place with the experienced team ensuring work is delivered with minimal disruption.

Mike Travis, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers commented:

“Fire risk works, carried out as a single service, or as part of a wider maintenance programme is a huge growth area for us. Operating a safe environment and ensuring a building meets all necessary building regs is essential and we are able to guide and work with our clients, showing them the best way forward to achieve all of their objectives.

“Work at Newton House have now begun and we look forward to working with Sanctuary and residents to complete works on time and within the agreed framework.”
