Planned maintenance of our homes

We carry out a range of improvements each year to our homes, buildings and estates, including replacing kitchens, bathrooms, windows and doors and roofs.

Stock condition surveys we carry out on our buildings show us when we need to carry out this work, based on the age of the building or the building component (eg the roof, or communal doors and windows)

We have a five year major works programme which is reviewed and updated every year with new information from the stock condition surveys. Nearer the time work is planned (about six to eighteen months before) we carry out a validation survey to check the condition of the building or building components, to see if the work is actually needed. If everything is in a good state of repair, then we won’t carry out unnecessary work.

Decoration of communal areas and the outside of buildings (we refer to these as ‘cyclical’ decorations) is carried out on a seven year cycle. This work is coordinated with major works, so we can make sure we carry out everything in the most cost-effective way.
