Seddon was appointed to Springwood and Hopwood estate decorations in Rochdale after a successful competitive tender. The scope included external decoration to pre- painted areas, therefore the preparation was required before painting could be undertaken.
The estate has 160 properties that includes two and three-bedroom homes and two to three story apartments, which meant that access such as scaffolding and MEWPs were utilised on this project to deliver the project. As part of our role delivering outcomes for RBH we agreed the following processes to enable the smoothing of works on the project:
Sequence of tasks and programme: understanding the property portfolio by surveying in advance and agreeing scope of works and cost. Agreed programme of works and sequence of operations.
Role of Site Supervisors: Coordinated and managed daily activities along with liaising closely with Rochdale Boroughwide Housing representatives.
Role of Painting Site Team: Carried out tasks in line with Rochdale Boroughwide Housing site specific specification to a high standard with zero defects.
Sign off processes: Interim quality inspections have been carried out by the Site Supervisor and Crown paints to monitor and record preparation and coating systems that have been applied, in line with the manufacturers specification.
Our customer is currently acting as principal designer and contract administrator to the project. Prior to the award, the leaseholders were involved in the consultation process. Seddon SHE advisors regularly visited to site to conduct audits and inspections of works being carried out. Rochdale Boroughwide Housings health and safety team also inspected our sites throughout the works to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing was at the forefront of our delivery.
Our site supervisors which are allocated to this project are SMSTS qualified and have over 15 years experience and are able to identify potential site risks every day and
liaise closely with our site team.
Contracts Manager Gary Leach liaised directly with Rochdale Boroughwide Housing representatives and is ultimately responsible for advising and actioning any decisions that need addressing on the project.
