CASE STUDY: Full void fill out
A bungalow in Lancaster had suffered severe fire damage with major repairs needed in the bedroom and lounge, the rest of the property suffering from smoke damage throughout.
Under a four week programme, SCS was tasked with stripping back the property, carrying out all repair and install works, and ensuring the property was in perfect condition for the new tenants.
The wide scale nature of the damage meant that the entire infrastructure of the house was reviewed with scope of works including removal and replacement of floor boards in certain areas as well as replacement of upvc windows which had melted in the blaze.
All internal and external doors were removed and replaced whilst skirting and architrave was renewed. The kitchen and bathroom were both ripped out and replaced and full decorative works were carried out throughout.
Externally, a roof refurbishment was completed including replacement of ties, felt and batons. New soffits and fascia’s were installed and a full scaffold system was installed allowing easy access for the site team.
A team of three multi-skilled operatives remained at the site throughout the project duration. The SCS team was able to carry out all works independently negating the need for subcontractors and therefore ensuring the quality and standards of works remained consistently high.
Sarah Southworth, Managing Director of SCS explained: “Our approach is to develop and train our team to ensure they have a broad range of skills, encompassing various trades. That is why our clients are increasingly turning to us with this type of large scale job, secure in the knowledge that we can manage everything in house.
“We are seeing more demand for this type of work and are pleased to be in a position where we have the resources and skills internally, offering a comprehensive one stop shop property solution.”
