Residential Refurbishment, Adaptation & Extension for Barnet Homes

Project Overview

Following a competitive tender process R. Benson was awarded the contract for the complete refurbishment, extension and adaptation works on the detached, three bedroomed residential property in Woodcroft Avenue.

The property had been empty for a number of years and was in a poor state of repair significant work was required to bring it back to a lettable standard.

Achieving milestones

Throughout the programme we worked in conjunction with the contract administrator to ensure key stage quality checks were undertaken and sign off by building control was achieved. The project was delivered to the delighted resident with zero defects at handover.

Service Delivery

Our resident liaison officer worked with the new resident and the occupational health team to ensure all the needs of the resident were considered at each stage of the project. A full range of paint options were offered to the new residents allowing them to personalise the colours of each room. The kitchen was designed to allow the resident full access to the sink, workspace, oven and living area.
