Case Study – Void Works (Housing Association) We have recently won a contract where we provide an all round maintenance service to turn around housing association void works within a short period of time and on a tight budget. One of the first specifications was sent through, works comprising: replacing the grout in the bathroom, resealing around the bath, sink & kitchen, fitting a new kitchen worktop and various other jobs. On top of this we had the locksmith work of replacing the locks, installing a door closer and a keysafe to the outside of the property. These works came in the Thursday before the August Bank Holiday weekend and the deadline was the Tuesday (day after the Bank Holiday!) Not much time to inspect site, work out and source materials and then get the job completed over what turned out to be the hottest Bank Holiday weekend record!! With exceptional organisation, and the correct understanding of what needed to do be done, we managed to get the entire specification, and with a day to spare! Our clients were so impressed with the works that three more specifications swiftly followed. This has opened us up to not only providing an excellent emergency locksmith service, but an all round maintenance service and has given us food for thought as to what our capabilities are! The future looks ‘well maintained’ for All Services 4U Ltd. For further information on our void works service, or indeed, any of our services, give us a call now on 020 3468 0414
We have recently had a number of the same issues at a couple of modern developments around North London. One by one, residents had been complaining about problems with their balcony doors not closing properly. On the first visit to one of these jobs, our engineer quickly worked out that the problem was with the hinges that had been used on the doors on the original build of the blocks. We then started a mighty search for these particular hinges, as they needed to be replaced like for like. These hinges originally came from Italy and are barely sourced in this country but we finally managed to find a company closer to home that could supply us by the following day. We attended site again and our engineer replaced the hinges one at a time and got the result we were looking for. Within days we were contacted by another of our clients, in a different block in North London, who had had reports from one of their tenants which sounded a very similar sort of problem. Sure enough, it was the same hinges! In total we have been in to fix four of these doors, with another few soon to follow. Great work from the engineer and the sourcing team!
