Asbestos Surveys at the Wellingborough Homes – A Case Study
Below you will find details of our project around delivering asbestos surveys for the Wellingborough Homes.
Wellingborough Homes is a not for profit organisation and is the largest landlord in Wellingborough. It was set up to meet the needs of the people of Wellingborough and the surrounding areas and has around 6,500 properties comprising of bungalows, flats and houses.
Acorn Analytical Services assist Wellingborough Homes with asbestos refurbishment surveys of void properties.
Asbestos Refurbishment Surveys
Wellingborough Homes regularly undertake repairs and upgrades to properties when they become void. Prior to the refurbishment teams entering the property Acorn will visit to undertake an asbestos survey to ensure the teams can work safely when upgrading the property.
Due to the time constraints placed on the client with void property turnarounds every part of the re-tenanting process must happen in a timely manner. When a new property becomes void Acorn receive a notification at the time of key safe installation, we then have agreed service level agreements with the client for timely access and report issue.
Acorn have worked with Wellingborough homes since 2012 and we hold a 100% service level agreement achievement record. No report has ever been outside of what was agreed with the client.
Since working with Acorn they have exceeded the council’s expectations with their high standards and innovative working methods.
